UnBespoke is an investigation in to the use of a natural material, Indiana limestone, in the production of a contemporary design object and a modular table accessory. There are four triangulated stone pieces that are designed to hold tea light candles and/or small-scale plants. The design stems from a famous mathematical problem, Haberdasher Puzzle, how to dissect a square into pieces that can then be reconstituted into an equilateral triangle. UnBespoke can be arranged in a variety of formation - from square to equilateral triangle or in any configurations as the user experiments with them.
