An exchange of ideas

Palagay is a coffee table that is a physical metaphor for social interaction and its effects.


Each connection that an individual makes with another, there is an exchange of ideas and points of view, that one unconsciously tries to understand. 

Each drawer represents each individual‘s ideas, beliefs, habits, and personality that overlaps one another which physically illustrates the exchange of ideas or points of view in a 3D pattern.

The square shape of the coffee table represents the coming together of different people, from different cultures, generations, and different walks of life.
