Mother-of-Pearl Inlay Table

Brooklyn-based furniture manufacturer olollo, inc. designed a series of custom tables incorporating laser cut wood veneer and mother-of-pearl inlay pieces. The mother-of-pearl portions of the table were cut from tiles made up of thin layers of capiz shells. After a series of tests, a system was devised for laser cutting the unusual material to the precise specifications of their design.
