Two Too Large Tables consists of two elements. Each is constructed of brushed stainless steel and Ipe wood. One piece has thirteen chairs extended up to become columns that raise a sixteen square feet plane seven feet off the ground. In the second piece the same thirteen chairs act as act as supports to lift a sixteen square feet plane 30 inches off the ground. The first functions as a shade pavilion, the second as a community table. As people sit they become part of the structure. People sit together, forming unusual pairings because of the chair groupings.
