Huddle Tables by Matthew Kroeker

The Huddle Tables by Matthew Kroeker features Robertson machine screws meticulously arranged into three effective bowl shapes, each being permanently fixed to their base counterparts.

The designer explains that “the screw, perhaps the definitive object of utility, is transformed into something elegant and impulsive; a far stretch from the original purpose of these fasteners. Now, these tightly-knit arrays of screws are given the task of holding your everyday objects, but also content being left untouched and only observed.”

The prototypes are made from FSC-certified walnut veneer and formaldehyde-free plywood. The screws are made by being fastened by hand and then painted with a powder-coated finish.
