UnBespoke is an investigation into the use of natural limestone in the production of a modular table accessory that can be arranged in a variety of formations. The design stems from a famous mathematical problem, the Haberdasher’s Puzzle, which solves how to dissect a square into pieces that can then be reconstituted into an equilateral triangle. When the pieces are rotated from the square to the equilateral triangle, the undulated interior edges of the initial square are revealed on the perimeter of the triangle.

With a subtle shift in their environment, the public is guided towards a balance between their inner and external realities.
