Furniture Design Balangay Dining Table by Jesy Christopher V. Cruz The table speaks about Filipino cultural modernity. it looks to the past for inspiration and moves towards the future. It speaks of togetherness as every dining table should. The design is a mixture of reclaimed wood and glass to exude a modern and clean look. Reclaimed wood popular locally has a unique appearance, durability and history. Sustainability would be its most distinct quality. Construction uses traditional tools and methods used by local master boat building tribes. Made by hand, energy consumption is minimized and waste in construction is 100% recoverable.
