Modular Table proposal // 2019 

Port Elizabeth, South Africa

Client: Port Elizabeth Community

Designer: Emily Reem

Workstations and tables were critical to design in order to get the most out of the makerspace.  With such limited interior space, the design is strategically crafted to not only exhaust the most of an entire pallet, but to also stay within the constraints of where our locally sourced materials are found.
