The four-inch-thick solid steel base of this table was found in a scrap yard. It seemed to convey motion. I wanted to take advantage of the material’s strength by supporting the entire weight of the top through the narrow neck of the base. The location of the neck, being off the center of balance of the table, helps reinforce the feeling of motion. This table is part of a private collection in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
