Join Me is a kitchen table made of linoleum and wood treated with linseed oil. The name plays on the exhibition title JOIN, describing a social and inviting act. A new take on the small, casual kitchen table, it fits two people perfectly but can also be expanded and adapted to accommodate larger groups. When the table is extended the base remains static, and the added overhang provides plenty of room for more people. The rounded tabletop allows the number of people sitting on each side to remain flexible.
