Mian Wei Illustrates The Grid Table

Mian Wei, the lead designer of the award winning design Table by Mian Wei says, The Grid is a table designed from a grid system that was inspired by traditional Chinese architecture, where a type of wooden structure called Dougong (Dou Gong) is used in various parts of a building. By the use of traditional interlocking wood structure, assembly of the table is also the process of learning about the structure and experiencing history. The supporting structure (Dou Gong) is made of modular parts that can be easily disassembled in need of storage..
