In TableTron, the table base, or vortex creates the imagery that reflects back to the film Tron. It doesn’;t take a lot imagination to visualize the primary character of the movie – a computer programmer – getting sucked into a whirlpool of software magic, only to disappear via an invisible barrier and enter the planet of Tron. Film visuals aside, TableTron is a beautifully executed design of an asymmetrical metal webbing and chamfered glass (or wood) that incorporates a base wide sufficient to support the leading, and transparent enough to compliment any space, no matter how modest.
The tabletop comes in glass or wood and the choice of woods available are as diverse as oak, rosewood, ebony, walnut, teak, and so forth. Although a wood top brings in a warm and classic appeal, the glass leading permits the intricacy of the mathematical logarithm of the steel base to be visible from every angle.
Marc Sadler designed the Tabletron for Capo d’;Opera and it will be shown in Imm Cologne in January. Marc Sadler Capo d’;Opera
