What inspired your Atlas & Friends table? “When these cubes are arranged as a surface, they reveal a language of large and small triagles, but as you look around the edge, you see the chunky wooden cubes that create those triangles. The name Atlas is a play on the three meanings that spring to mind: the mountains bordering the Sahara, the image of the geographical features on the surface of the planet, and the Titan bearing the globe on his shoulders. It’s kind of a heroic piece; there’s a lot of labor involved, and it’s real, old-fashioned craftsmanship.”
