I recently entered a table design into the Dwell Magazine and Caesarstone Table competition. All entries are available at Dwell.com . In mathematics, a **Voronoi diagram**is a special kind of decomposition of a metric space determined by distances to a specified discrete set of objects in the space, e.g., by a discrete set of points. Voronoi diagrams that are used in geophysics and meteorology to analyze spatially distributed data are called **Thiessen polygons. **My design worked on the notion that the table is a place where agents interact socially over geophysical space (Caesarstone). As the conversation shifts so does the spatial influence of the participants on the table. These are defined by a thiessen polygons. The base of the table is a 3d path of travel from one thiessen polygon diagram to another extruded in the z direction. The polygons are then subdivided and generate a structural lattice to support the cantilevered table top from the base.
