Dirty Furniture 2/6 : Table
Publisher Dirty Furniture
The theme of the second instalment of ‘Dirty Furniture’ is the table. The least structurally complicated piece of furniture, the table nevertheless hosts a hugely difficult set of cultural practices, habits, and humours, from eating, working, and playing, to discussing, debating, and reaching decisions. It is witness to all manner of social and personal interactions, whether between family, peers, colleagues, or friends. Contributions to this investigation of the table include Tamar Shafrir’s social and economic critique of the ready meal, Federico Campagna’s thoughts on the table’s humble origins, Will Wiles’s analysis of war gaming, a structural scrutiny by Jonathan Olivares, and more.
