“Concorde Table” for Degenerate Art Ensemble’s Performance of On the Beach

Location Seattle, Washington
Design Principal Alan Maskin
Design Collaborator Blair Payson

Alan Maskin, Blair Payson, John Nebendahl and Phil Turner designed a rolling table for Degenerate Art Ensemble’s (DAE) performance of On the Beach in New York City. Dubbed the “Concorde Table” for its “nose” that droops down like the airplane of the same name, the table unfolds and rolls, adapting to the artists’ needs during the performance.

The versatile table is 18’ long by +/-2’-0” wide when fully unfolded and 6’ long by 4’-6” wide when in its folded/collapsed position. It is made of plywood and has 12 casters, 2 piano hinges and 2 swivel bearings. It was designed to be entirely disassembled for transport and offer some acoustic variety over its length as its surface is “played” like an instrument with small mallets during the performance.
