Canadian woodworker Kino Guérin is an expert in creating unique furniture designs. His latest masterpiece is a table entitled Why Knot. Guérin enjoys challenges which is apparent in this design. In Why Not, he decided that he “would make furniture with a unique piece of wood with no legs, no crossbars or supports.”

He continues to share how to achieve this illusion, “To get this overall effect, the panel must be bent further in order to obtain an airy movement, as if this had been done naturally. It must reflect equilibrium between the curve and the straight line, between exuberance and purity. The whole essence of this aesthetic approach can thus be captured at a glance and let one speechless at the sight of this splendid beauty, requiring no props or devices. It is my definition of perfection. I gave myself heart and soul in this approach, that I have made mine, and it is now my guidance. With it, I doubt no more.”
