These pedestals are made from three pieces of beech wood that fit together with seamless lap joinery. Their simplicity is a perfect way to show off arrangements both high and low. Use them to display plants, candles, seashells, flowers, hors d’oeuvres, and all your fine or humble wares. Set of two.

The design of these trays is part of a larger investigation of scale and proportion. I’ve always been interested in how shifts in scale impact our ideas about function and utility. Trays represent a class of object with versatile but ambiguous function, providing a surface that can be used in countless ways. The tray, with its very basic formal and functional requirements, lends itself well to a study of shifting scales.
The form of these shifted throughout the development process to accommodate material and production considerations posed by the constraints of mass production. The formal and structural simplicity of the trays draws from traditional woodworking techniques—specifically, the lap joint, which is as humble as it is elegant.
The project was renamed from Stacking Trays to Pedestals to reflect their versatile function throughout the home.
