This graphic modern table entitled Fall Off was designed by New Zealand based industrial designer Sam Stringleman.
“Fall Off is a computer generated table in which surface density is defined by the placement of objects on a virtual table through a web interface. The table utilises a voronoi pattern, which is a mathematical way of dividing a space into a number of regions. As a virtual object, for example a laptop or coffee cup, is moved around on the table, the epicenter of the structure follows. This forms supporting density on the top surface and structural form on the underside which accommodates splayed legs. The surrounding density is controllable through a digital falloff, representing a gradual decrease With the addition of more objects the density increases to a state of equilibrium with just enough structure to perform the required task but move it and it will Fall Off.”
