Concrete Table No.2
Renee Struthers' Concrete Table No.2 has been accepted for the Interior Design Show Toronto in January 2015 as part of the prototype section of the show. The table was created in a studio at the University of Manitoba while working towards her Masters of Interior Design in the Faculty of Architecture. The table is described as follows:

The initial fluidity of concrete creates the ability to form new and interesting shapes both organic and inorganic. This contradictory relationship between fluidity and solidity, organic and inorganic is celebrated in the formal aspects of Concrete Table No.2, as well as its intention to reflect the simplicity and subtlety of the prairie landscape. Concrete Table No.2 is manufactured using a concrete mold, yet maintains custom appeal through the use of hand pouring and finishing; this ensures the uniqueness of each piece. Its durability and minimalist sculptural nature add to its appeal in both a sustainable and aesthetic sense. The cavities allow users to customize the tables' use in a variety of spaces. The scale of the table allows individuals to congregate around it in a more or less intimate manner, sharing in the makers’ own intimacy with the piece, evident through the hand-formed and finished tabletop.
