This is one super-incredibly-thin table. It costs fifty thousand freaking dollars. Just thought I’d hit you over the head with that right up front. Lose one of those little zeroes to the left of the decimal point, and suddenly it’s much more reasonable. I don’t mean to be such a critic (I know some people spend that much or more on a car) but I still have trouble absorbing that extra zero. That said, I appreciate the technology behind such an endeavor. It’s definitely a looker.
By using state-of-the-art autosport and aerospace technology, and exploiting the inherent rigidity of layered carbon fiber, Woodgate and Barnard have created an astonishing table that spans nearly 8 feet and has a thickness of less than 1/10 of an inch. Also available in a limited run of 99 with a length of nearly 10 feet.
