    Do you think using a similar technique as used in these chairs fora table would be a viable idea, if the shadow shape was weighted?

  3. John Calloway says:

    Yes, that wouldwork well once you have found the correct weight to balance the table. Also you probably need to consider wether the shape when increased in size is still asthetically intact!
