SUGAR CUBE Coffee Table

Designer: Laura Poškutė

Vilnius Academy of Arts, Telšiai Faculty

This project is inspired by the sugar cube. It’s a simple, playful, lightweight design and looks rather like a Japanese tea table. The chosen transparent surface creates the illusion that the cubes ‘float in the air’. The cubes made of different types of wood are freely assembled on the surface so as to combine them, as needed, to achieve planes of varied sizes – or trays. The materials are maple and oak and PMMA glass, while the technology includes wood milling, planing, frame assembly using pins and wood glue.
