This week’s selection is the “Spider” table created by UK designer Daneil Widrig, who produced this work as a private commission. It’s made from 3D printed titanium, using an SLM process, and a slab of glass. 
The table is quite large by 3D printing standards; it’s 2.05 x 1.0 x 0.73 meters, but just right for an incredible table in your home or office. 
We’re impressed with the transformation of the design’s startling complexity at the fine detail level into clear, curvy support structures holding up the glass sheet. While seemingly made from metal toothpicks, this structure is obviously strong enough to support a heavy piece of glass.
