In a world taken over by electronic games and virtual entertainment, the Missing Pieces table stands as a reminder of the days of patience, tangibility, and interpersonal synergy. The 4800 jigsaw puzzle pieces that make up this table are from a compilation of the Arc de Triomphe, Winnie the Pooh, the Taj Mahal, and a night sky, and serve as familiar fragments that invite us to play and enjoy life despite what we feel may be missing.

Designer Rupert McKelvie says"Jigsaw sets were something many of us grew up playing with, including myself. I was all too aware of the frustration of nearing the end and realising there were ‘missing pieces’. It became something that would never see completion. Left to gather dust in the attic, amongst all other things discarded and lost in time".
