Wishbone Series | Dining - Joined Hardwood
Wishbone Series dining is available as a dining table or desk. STACKLAB’s signature cast-metal Wishbone leg represents the firm’s first foray into iterative, digital prototyping, a technique that surpasses physical testing in its ability to optimize form and significantly reduce waste.
The leg was originally created in aluminum to work with a 16’ long x 48” wide x 3” thick hardwood tabletop. The form was optimized for several structural stresses, such as deflection and frequency. Since then, the materials palette has been expanded to include bronze and iron, which perform similarly. The sand-casting process produces faintly perceptible irregularities that enhance the leg’s tactile appeal.
The tabletop is available as a solid domestic hardwood slab, joined solid domestic hardwood boards with reinforcing stitch joints in the same metal as the legs, and Engineered Cementitious Composite (ECC).
In the joined-hardwood top, the slightly different appearance of each board—so unlike the unnatural perfection of veneered furniture—generates unusual variety. STACKLAB welcomes the small variances found in natural materials whose inconsistencies disqualify their use in typical furniture applications. The Wishbone series exemplifies STACKLAB’s belief that all materials are inherently beautiful.
ECC resembles, but is more elastic and less brittle than, concrete, and better suited for the building of furniture. It uses recycled glass as an aggregate and recycled fiber as a reinforcing agent.
