Andrei Hakhovich runs a small design studio in San Francisco called Gradient Matter, crafting hand built furniture and design ideas like the Branching Table. The walnut and bamboo plywood table is one-of-a-kind and was inspired by the wood grain patterns of trees.

The table looks as if it has been pulled apart and stretched out, exposing the inner layers and grain of the wood.

Using locally sourced woods, the two materials were joined with wood lap joints without the need for any hardware. Plexiglas is inserted on the top into the cutouts providing a flat surface to put stuff on.
