2012 04 20 Douglas Irving Repettos Foal

Douglas Irving Repetto's "foal" project has been one of my favorites for years. Not sure why it took me so long to post it here. It's a simple walking tableā€”a piece of furniture that weirdly, animatedly, mimics the first tentative steps of a gangly animal.

Repetto has taught people to make these creatures at workshops. Pictures below from a workshop at MOMA; you can read more about its appearance at various venues here.
