The diameter of the round table is designed into 6.2m. And table’s surface was made up by overlaying pieces of artificial marble, which presents gradual fluctuation of terrace farmings. then injected water into the groove in surface of the table. With the different height level of the groove in the table, the color of water is different. The project located in the commercial and populated city, so we are trying to use this distance design in order to let people enjoin enough space.
