Fruiting Bodies explores the relationship between us and our everyday. Derived from the word “excrescence”, it takes a form inspired from the parasitic relationship between cordyceps and insects. The protrusions come through the table top, forcing users into placing their objects in peculiar ways, similar to the cordyceps control over their hosts.

Limited to one 5’x5’ sheet of birch plywood and wood glue, this table was assembled using a simple stub tenon and groove joint, along with a number of square holes cut to place the cordycep pieces in. The table was oiled to bring out the natural colour of the wood.
