Grand Canyon Table Shows How Art Can Flow Into Design

Some designs start with practical realities, others with artistic inspiration, but some mix the two from start to finish, like this hybrid glass-and-wood Grand Canyon Table.

Amit Apel introduces a river of glazing sandwiched between wooden panels that is neither devoid of use nor specific to any particular purpose.

The result is a visual highlight as well as a place one could imagine would evolve a specific meaning or usage over time – perhaps that is where you put a piece of sculpture, or the book you are currently reading, versus the general-purpose rest of the surface area.
