The first of two tables is 36 feet long, and made of bent steel and maple plywood veneer. The table was designed and engineered in 4 sections so that it could be fabricated by local craftsman in Los Angeles and shipped to Atlanta.

General Assembly - Boston

PROJECT BRIEF
General Assembly is a pioneer in education and career transformation, offering classes in 21st century skills such as programming, UX design, digital marketing and data analytics. With each new location that they open, they challenge us to inject a sense of architectural history and place into the newly minted campus through the bespoke furniture and fixtures that we create.

DESIGN
GA’s new Boston campus is located in a 22-story, modern steel and glass skyscraper, which in 1989, was constructed on top of an original 19th century granite and cast stone building.

Taking inspiration from the unlikely combination and stacking of architectural styles, our custom communal table features a 16’ long mixed stone plinth which serves as a foundation for the steel table tops which appear to hang from the sides of the stone.
