The Common Table

In the first century church, people from different backgrounds came together at one table, to share a communal meal known as the love feast. Reflecting a contemporary desire for unity, Zavier Wong has designed a long table for the same purpose. It is composed of five separate tables embodying five different people. They are made of found materials: scrap wood, steel, brick, styrofoam and plastic. All materials are broken down into smaller pieces to represent a common feeling; regardless of language, race or religion, we all go through devastating moments in life. However, Zavier believes that crushing experiences always carry the seeds of growth. Hence the organic form of this symbolic piece of furniture: the irregular bits and pieces all seem to grow and come back to life.
