Wood and wax. That´s all. Wood is a material that arises from the sunlight, air, water and soil. It gets shape and grows according to its surrounding in the landscape. The tree gets older. After one century since its planting the man comes and fells him. My responsibility is to take this beautiful material that has existed a lot of years to create something matching this long journey.
I suggest a table that counts with all the characteristics of wood and held together by inner forces. Table which holds out as long as it grows up. I want it to come into an environment, a family who will sit around him for hundred years. The table will be a stable, silent support. It will radiate its experiences out and absorb what you experience with it.
The basic shape of the table is very simple. There are only four beams and board over them. The uniqueness and beauty are hidden in the details – proportions, joints, wood itself.
The fine geometry is based on the centuries -bearing tradition of craft skills joinery. Some of them were developed specially for this table to move the crafts a bit further. Construction of the table is an answear to the fact that wood is a living material. After felling it is twisting, shrinking and changing its shape due to humidity and other factors of surrounding. This table was designed based on this knowledge. The more wood twists, the more table gets stable and solid. This is all done without any glue. Using this technology we pay tribute to the carpenters who build houses similar way.
