Gongzheng Tables use an aluminium profile to explore the limits of the size and strength of furniture. The collection looks clean and minimalist which is attributed to the material properties straight, and the length dimension of the furniture is almost unlimited, thereby extremely long and high-strength flat aluminum profiles can form a high-intensity and long-span desktop. In accordance with the through-structure of the profile, the designer has designed a unique connection structure to connect the profile panels flatly, thereby allowing the desktop to be multiplied in the lateral direction to accommodate the user’s needs for different width desktops. The I-beam form legs and cross braces have similar functional characteristics to the commonly used I-beams in construction, and are lightweight and have an extremely high structural strength. Due to the hollow structure of the aluminum profile, the use of the material is greatly reduced while ensuring strength and stability, and making the tables light and elegant.
