Table for ”On the Road”
路上展テーブル

This display furniture was designed for the “On the Road” exhibition held in 2011. The design requirement was to design a display case to display two books side by side, namely “Every Building on the Sunset Strip” by Ed Ruscha and “Album: Eight Blocks of Ginza (Ginza Haccho)” by Shohachi Kimura. Both books have accordion-folded pages which measure 7.5m and 5.4m respectively when extended, and the furniture should be assembled and disassembled easily for future uses. Five sets of 1650mm-long table made of basswood plywood are connected and acrylic panels are installed on top to make an 8m-long display case. Each table is composed of parts cut out from 24-mm thick basswood plywood boards. The tables are assembled by inserting legs into mortises in the countertop, and assembling side panels around the countertop so that the exposed edges of plywood parts appear around the countertop. Lastly, wedges are inserted to stabilize the countertop, legs, and side panels.

「路上」展(2011年)のための展示什器のデザイン。折りたたまれたページを展開すると、エド・ルシェー「サンセット・ストリップ沿いのすべての建物」が7.5m、木村荘八「アルバム・銀座八丁」が5.4mにもなるふたつの書籍を並べて収めるための展示ケースで、かつ、今後も使用できるように組み立て・分解ができるものを、というのが設計条件であった。1台ごとに組み立てられる長さ1650mmのシナベニヤ製のテーブルを5台連結させ、アクリル板をのせて8mの展示ケースとなる。各テーブルは24mmのシナベニヤを切り出したパーツからできており、天板に開けたほぞ穴に脚を差し込んで側板と組み合わせるとテーブル上面にはベニヤの断面が現れる。最後に楔を打ち込むと天板と脚と側板が固定される。
