Wudu Wooden Coffee Table

Wudu Wooden Coffee Table

Kaushik Krishna’s Wudu table is constructed of no less than eight species of distinct woods.

Wudu—which translates as “ablution” or “ritual washing”—eschews uniformity in favor of a bold synchrony between and among Rose Wood, Neem, Eucalyptus, Red Sandalwood, Mahogany, Blackwood, Sal, and Pine.

The result is a gorgeous kind of illusion that reminds me of Cubist art: Krishna’s expert hand seamlessly fuses these disparate woods into a unified whole that gives us a simultaneous glimpse of many places, many forests.
