The Y-Table [DAZ version] by The Anxious Prop, in collaboration with DAZ and Raumtaktik, 2011

The Y-Table is not a finished object. It is a customizable workstation that is CNC fabricated, built only on-demand to help resolve the common creative questions of its users. As a sustainable approach, it is a customizable idea designed to facilitate specific production processes while keeping material excess to a minimum. The Y-Table always keeps its distinctive three-partite form, but its dimensions and surface-features vary from use to use, from site to site.

The DAZ version was developed by Matthias Böttger, Silke Johannes [+DAZ team], Ludwig Engel [Raumtaktik], Mendel Heit, Patrick Kochlik, Jens Wunderling, Jan Bovelet, and Luis Berríos-Negrón.

The Y-Table was initially a participatory installation for Case 3 of The Anxious Prop at Salon Populaire in 2010. It served as an interface and large-scale template for the collective and the audience to come together through the editing and binding of The Black Swan Issue feuilleton. The initial concept was a collaboration between Luis Berríos-Negrón, Elín Hansdóttir, Mendel Heit, Fotini Lazaridou-Hatzigoga, and The Product.
