Drip Table by Godoylab

Trust Inhabitat to scoop Emiliano Godoy’s latest sustainable design.

Mexico City-based Godoylab have produced a new table of sustainable teak. The Drip Table gives the wood its due, even if the delicacy of the leg detailing leaves something to be desired. However, that look derives from attempts to maximize the material – teak – which cannot be sold in large planks. Instead, smaller pieces are glued together promoting full use of each tree.

Aesthetically, the Drip Table has faults. But, when weighted according to potential as homage to teak, its charms are more easily sung.
