Live Edge Sycamore and Angle Iron standing conference table. 96L x 26W x 42H The concept was to make a table that was a sort of 'landing pad' for laptops and smart phones with a hidden cable tray running down the center for charging cables. This way, a group can be more free to interact, adjust their point of view and share more easily the contents of their screens instead of being locked in position by chairs.

Robert Rauschenberg, 1969 "I love Los Angeles. I once said publicly that one of the reasons I like Los Angeles is that it is a thousand miles wide and a quarter of an inch deep. I find L.A. both innocent and stimulating. It has that kind of Western feeling, a controversial rawness. The city works with my renegade feelings about what art is, both of what it's not supposed to be and what it could be." -RR
