Paris Table     (Paris)

Tradition meets contemporary shapes
When working with materials, we try to analyze what the material itself has tooffer and how did people work with it in the past. Materials have got a lot of different possibilities, to cherish these we try to keep the design simple and reluctant to focus on the material.
The Paris table is an example of how contemporary shapes go along with traditional surface treatments. In the middle age, swords were submerged into linseed oil to make them stronger but also to protect the steel from rust.
In several layers, linseed was burnt into the steel to achieve a protective coat.
The dark brown shade isn‘t homogeneous areas where the heat got more impact, are darker. The color can range from gold to dark brown, even bluish shades can occur from the steel.

Bespoke table design for a 18th-Century Paris apartment that elegantly blends past and future.

Material: 140kg steel, linseed oil

Tradition meets contemporary shapes
When working with materials, we try to analyze what the material itself has to offer and how did people work with it in the past. Materials have got a lot of different possibilities, to cherish these we try to keep the design simple and reluctant to focus on the material.
The Paris table is an example of how contemporary shapes go along with traditional surface treatments.
To expand the technique of the surface treatment and its natural possibility to change its color, the steel was treated with acid. A thin protective layer (stainless steel) is the result.
The surface is covered with oil afterwards to protect the steel from corrosion.
Also in this technique the metal has got its own character regarding the formation of color. This is depending on time the acid got contact to the metal, the way it is applied and the amount of liquid used.
A natural unique look is the result which can‘t be copied because steel is a natural product with its own characteristics.

Material: Size S 90 kg steel, Size M 110kg steel, blackened
