Michael Beitz is an Assistant Professor at the University of Wisconsin–Oshkosh. Michael skillfully combined beautiful designs with meticulous craftsmanship to create these four amazingly designed tables. There’s a looping picnic table, a melting picnic table, and even a table in the shape of a tree.
They’re definitely art, but the kind of art you want to eat on.
Michael received his MFA from the University of Buffalo in 2009. Find out more here.
Looping Picnic Table
Melting Picnic Table
While in residence at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts in Omaha, Michael Beitz built this 10-foot-long picnic table that looks to be melting and dripping down over railing to the terrace below.
The table was built from laminated poplar. A video of the construction process can be seen here.
Tree Shaped Picnic Table
Not technically a picnic table, but a table nonetheless.
Michael has lots more beautiful work to see, so check out his website.
