Puchina High Table
A vortex is an area in a fluid where the flow spins around an axis line that might be straight or curved in fluid dynamics. Smoke rings, whirlpools in a boat’s wake, and the winds around a tropical cyclone, tornado, or dust devil are all examples of vortices that develop in stirred fluids.
The dynamics of vortices are a significant idea and source of inspiration for the Puchina high table. The motions and flows of the vortices have defined the form of the table. These dynamic circulation notions have been translated into a real product design.
For the Puchina High Table, we specifically sought to achieve a frozen fluid motion illusion. The Puchina Table functions as a bar table and a lectern for exhibits or television presentations.
