Haptic: Elegant Console Inspired by General Store

Post Image

Inspiration can strike anywhere, even at a small general store in North Brookfield, New York. Lisa Sacco, a recent graduate of RISD’s furniture design program, found herself captivated by the rhythmic beauty of corrugated sheet metal while enjoying breakfast at Klings Mill, a local establishment with a rich history. This fascination led her to create Haptic, an elegant console table that embodies the material’s essence.

Haptic is a stunning piece crafted from a single quarter-sewn oak plank. Sacco’s process involves cutting the wood into thirds and using a CNC machine to carve out undulating waves, reminiscent of the corrugated metal that inspired her. The three pieces are then reassembled to form a seamless, waterfall-like console. A drawer provides discreet storage, enhancing the console’s functionality.

Adding a touch of whimsy to the design are glass vessels that Sacco blows directly onto corrugated sheet metal. Once hardened, these vessels effortlessly glide across the console’s surface, creating a harmonious blend of materials and textures.

Sacco’s work is a testament to her ability to find beauty in unexpected places and transform it into functional art. Haptic not only showcases her talent as a designer but also pays homage to the past while embracing a shift in material awareness. It serves as a reminder that inspiration can be found everywhere, from the mundane to the extraordinary.
