Coffee table

2017 Design Zurich

The coffee table consists of a steel frame, and a concrete top and measures 900x600x500mm. The frame is made out of a square 14mm steel section, welded together with TIG welding and the fibre reinforced concrete top is only 12mm thick.

The heat discoloration, and grinding marks are left visible to show where the steel was treated. A similar approach was taken with the concrete top. It is purposefully only partially water proofed, allowing for stains and marks to be formed over time. This way the table carries with it all the memories and history of all the coffees and wines that where drank on it.
