In this tutorial I’m going to show you how to quickly create the amazing ‘Mesa’ table by Zaha Hadid in 3Ds max.
It’s quite a complex piece of furniture with very organic shapes. Fortunately, the modeling is not too difficult and can be done using some very simple tools. Since the table looks so complex, there is no need to fret over the details too much – the most important thing is to get the ‘look’ right.
I started by making a simple 3d sketch with some splines. Since this process was mostly staring at the photos and scratching my head, I didn’t include it in the tutorial :)
The rest of the modeling process can be seen on video below!

I can’t guarantee it’s accuracy, since I didn’t have any blueprints or side/top/front view photos :)
