ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
For my money, you’re better off with some oil cloth and a staple gun.
MEMBRAIN @2, I don’t think you’re being a troll. As with almost anything on eBay, caveat emptor.
Hmmm… I wonder how long before an instructable for this shows up.
And here I was visualizing some elegant, billowing white sheet that was mystifyingly frozen in time. Sadly, this looks like someone just hasn’t finished unpacking the furniture for a sidewalk bistro. Interesting idea, nonetheless.
My guess is that the table wasn’t draped in fabric and then coated with resin, but rather resin was added to the fabric and then the resin impregnated fabric was draped over the table and then arranged. It could be done with about a gallong of epoxy but it’d be a godawfully messy process.
reminds me of chairs here: http://www.joshursodesign.com/
of course, i have a bad habit of piling clothes on all my chairs, so this furniture would just make me look like i had a lot of laundry to do.
I have to say it: looks like a shroom.
Well I, for one, think it’s gorgeous. We need a good HOWTO for this….
This sounds like a fun and challenging DIY project.
Better examples of the impermanent made permanent:
John Brauer’s Illusion table – Acrylic (the clear is cool but the white is the better illusion).
Marcel Wander’s Knotted Chair – Rope and resin
Mmm. Great concept and idea but the table on the pictures aren’t really that nice in my humble opinion.
The idea might have some merit, but this looks exactly like my old patio set when I’d wrap it up in plastic before winter. And sorry but I hate the colour *wince*.
On the other hand, KAIZA’s link shows some pretty darn cool stuff: The Essey illusion tables are impressive!
Ok now don’t call me a troll, who says this must be from the 1970′s? The seller doesn’t seem to be completely legit to me (too many typos in the product info, etc). I call it a hoax.
Oh yeah, and it’s probably Photoshoppped, too!
