Dining Room Table
Bench Dog Design, 2012
Reclaimed Wood, Steel
38" W x 90" L

This table, custom-made by David Quadrini of Bench Dog Design for Four Corners, melds aesthetics, sustainability, structural rigor, and poetry. The surface is made from floor joists reclaimed from homes and factories throughout the city. Part of Bench Dog’s mission is to give Philadelphia’s abandoned lumber new life. The steel base is left raw with a wax finish to complement the wood’s warm hues, and the weight of the wood is accentuated by the perceived lightness of the steel frame. The configurations of steel rods echo reeds blowing in the wind. CT
