Divided City tables by Ezri Tarazi

September 18th, 2015 by retail design blog

The table’s design reflects the geopolitical situation of the divided city of Jerusalem. The table top is made up of a puzzle of twenty parts of typical Jerusalem objects from the Old City. The items are separated from each other according to streets marked on a map of the city. An opening mechanism divides tabletop in two by raising the serving areas and moving them toward those using the table, as if serving up an offering.

On opening the table, the map splits in two to produce a tangible expression of the divided city. Thus, when the table is closed it emphasizes the beauty of the city as a whole consisting of many multi-faceted parts; however, when the table is in use its top is no longer a single unbroken surface, the mechanism is revealed and its aesthetic appearance is spoiled for the viewer.
