The Y-Table: MakerLab Version
Initially created as a curatorial device for specific public intervention, The Y-Table: MakerLab Version is one of the works of the Berlin-based collective, The Anxious Prop created purposely for the MakerLab events. The Y-table is not a finished design object. It is a customizable workstation that is CNC fabricated, built only on-demand to help resolve the common creative questions of its users. As a sustainable approach, it is a customizable idea designed to facilitate specific production processes while keeping material excess to a minimum. The Y-Table always keeps its distinctive three-partite form, but its dimensions and surface-features vary from use to use, from site to site. The Y-Table MakerLab version was first born for the Salone del Mobile and Public Design Festival (Milan 2011). We believe the table’s beauty relies in its capacity to provide an ideal solution to the needs of their users and audience. Both establishing an open work-space and facilitating the dialogue. At the festival, the Y-Table will be used by the Maker Lab, providing them with a sturdy workbench and a conference table, where activities such as carpentry, Arduino electronics, and social dialogue can be mediated.
The Y-Table: MakerLab version is available for your specific workshops. We are renting it out for 1000€ (2days including transport and installation in Berlin) If you like to rent it or more info please email: firstname.lastname@example.org Proceeds from the Y- Table will be used strictly to fund the future, common explorations of the MakerLab and The Anxious Prop.
