Presented by Kikkerland Design, this table is a replica of the piece designed by Jan Habraken and Sergio Maninno for the Kikkerland Design booth for the ICFF. The 3D modeling was executed by designer Jozeph Forakis.
Here are some details:
The actual Big Table is 13ft, or 396.24cm
396.24cm = 3,962.4mm
3,962.4 divided by 500 = 7.9248
The Little Big Table is exactly 7.924mm in Length, or precisely 1/500th scale.
In other words, if you take 500 of the Little Big Tables and line them up end-to-end, they will be the same length as the 13ft Big Table.
The 3D modeling of the Table took over 20 hours: most of that time spent perfecting the "draping" & "folding" effect of the tablecloth to get it just right.
It is made using ultra-high resolution 3D-printing technology, with a special resin that is used, among other applications, for highly detailed, high precision, small scale jewelry.
The Bordeaux color is the natural color of the resin... which is a good thing: at this scale, any attempt to paint the Little Big Table would have dramatically diminished the surface detailing and would been the equivalent of adding 3-5cm of thickness in scale!
The Smallest Table in the World will be entered for consideration in the Guinness Book of World Records.
