Table Topography

Viral urban legends, David O'Reilly's Mountain Game, the moon's two faces and more in our weekly look at the web

Pulling logs from the river that runs behind his studio in northern Washington, furniture-maker and designer Greg Klassen’s latest collection draws on the natural lines of rot and decomposition to create topographic map-like representations of rivers. With a piece of hand-cut glass inlaid atop the joined pieces of wood and the texture from the wood’s grain, there is both depth and a sense of calm brought by Klassen’s functional art that will bring any room a sophisticated touch of the great outdoors.
