A string/rope is a material that gives a designer a lot of flexibility and choices. There is a wide range of materials and color choices. I chose to use a static rope (not stretchable) as a material to explore. I realised that making a coffee table using the tension of a static rope would be creative. I have seen many objects like chairs, hammocks, lamps, etc made out of rope so it wasn’t a matter of innovation but it was more about replacing the surface of the coffee table with strings. After much contemplation and experimentation I finally figured a way to tie the rope around the metal frame by enhancing it’s intricate weave but at the same time making it functional.
