Large leg-shaped tabletop. Koen Van Eeckhoutte shows experimentation in the possibilities of shape in a functional table. This time questioning the classic format of a flat tabletop and its necessity. What happens if a table is created as a layered landscape, playing with its basic function; carrying stuff. An interaction occurs where the users, like children playing with toys, must figure out where they want to direct their interaction and choose a place to land their items.
EDDIE is made to be a low table in order to draw the eye mainly on the leg’s landscape, rather than its actual table-legs. EDDIE would be best suited for a low sofa (lounge) setting.
The steel couch legs where found on an abandoned couch, sitting across the maker’s atelier.
