Tavola – timeless character

A table is a special piece of furniture. It frequently defines a place where our everyday routine, our life takes place. We have conversations, eat, play and work at it. It stands in a familiar environment and it gathers family and friends around it. A good table has character and at the same time a timeless appearance. It may be the case that you purchase a table like this only once in your lifetime. The surfaces that age over the years and the traces of use that accumulate with time frequently tell their own personal story about their owners.

Attention to detail

A good table exhibits extraordinary quality down to the last detail. We attach utmost importance to quality when selecting the materials and when manufacturing. For this reason, we work together with experienced partners who, like us, go about their work with great passion and attention to detail. Yet, modern manufacturing techniques and traditional workmanship do not exclude but complement each other. It is not until after many hours of careful craftsmanship that small and unique sculptures are made from the unfinished casting which, together with the frame shaped using CNC, results in a harmonious overall appearance. We attach great importance to our products being made from the best materials and being produced with the greatest of care in Germany.

Functional centrepiece

Our table comprises a total of three components. The two bronze supports, a centre frame and a wooden table top. The connection between support and frame forms the functional centrepiece of the furniture. The supports are hinged into the frame in the middle and form a stable, form-locked support by inclining the position. The table top is placed on top of this and locked in place. Although many of the details underneath the table top can hardly be seen, we found it important to design these parts in both a functional and technical way. This way, the supports and frame almost have a sculptural look that emphasizes the special character of this furniture, even if not visible until taking a closer look. The flowing lines playfully observe the static requirements and, at the same time, form an interconnected unit of wood and bronze.

Best quality natural materials

Wood and bronze. The selection is limited to merely two exquisite materials. Cast bronze possesses a unique and distinctive feel and look due to the method of manufacturing. The individual surfaces can have very different properties and range from a course casting skin structure down to a very smooth and shiny surface. Even the smoked oak wood reveals a dominant structure that harmonizes well with the metal. The bronze parts are merely covered with a thin layer of matt wax, to not protect them from a natural aging process. However the wooden parts are varnished in order to maintain a long-lasting surface for everyday use.

Design with a long life

We are positive that quality is upheld in the many years of use. The latter may also leave behind personal marks, which is actually what gives our products their own character, a personality. It is our aim to create things that are appreciated by their owner. It is the special deep relationship between an individual and an object that actually gives a object a soul.
