  • 10. NAKED TABLE The Naked Table Project invites groups to participate in the creation of a simple, contemporary table, from assembly, to designating a replacement tree, to a locally-grown invited dinner on the table, to its final home. Participants also get to visit the woods with a professional forester to see the source of their lumber and identify a replacement seedling tree. The GPS coordinates of that tree are then recorded and attached to the base of the signed, numbered and finished Naked Table.EXAMPLES ‘Naked Table’ via Springwise www.nakedtable.comANALYZING TRENDS / TIM STOCK / FALL 2011 / CARA COLUCCI & MARGAUX HALDIMANN
