I use hard maple and walnut as the material for the table, applying their color to represent the ower and root of lotus. Through the strong contrast of color, I want to show the purity of the ower. The hardness of hard maple can enhance the overall structure of the table. The main body of the side table is made of there round table tops in di erent sizes, and composed in di erent heights. The de- sign is not only focused on external shape but also ts for di erent usage occasions. These three table tops are organically connected to each other. The bottom table top is the largest to represent the water surface, thus divide the design into two parts – the up world and the under world.
