About this artwork

Marcel Wanders’s Crochet Table challenges the qualities associated with needlework as a non-structural, decorative embellishment. Playing off a minimalist vocabulary, Wanders took lacy, crocheted cotton and wrapped it over a simple rectangular form. The cotton was then coated with an epoxy to seal the surface and harden it into shape. Finally, the form within was removed, leaving a simple box that is structurally and solely made of the crocheted material.
