Submitted as a competition entry to design new furniture to be produced by the Egyptian Furniture Export Council inn 2013, the Supernatural-Deliciosa Table was derived from the shape of the leaf of the Monestera deliciosa plant and was produced in three material iterations: metal, wood and plexi. I was particularly interested in how this common tropical plant traveled from Mexico City to Cairo and how it became ubiquitous on many Cairo patios and indoor spaces and wanted through a sculptural form to experiment with bringing it into the domestic setting in another form.
