Powerfully expressive, this family of tables and coffee tables draws inspiration from the fluid, organic shapes of tree trunks, true sculptures produced by nature. A masterful technique of high-end cabinetry made the creation of extremely complex curves and veneers possible. The contoured internal structure is in MDF, sheathed in larch veneered plywood which is then milled along the curved edges. The larch base in prefinished Dove Grey and Licorice lacquer can be paired with tops in the following finishes: open-pore stained ash in Dove Grey or Licorice colour. The underside has a matt finish in the same colour as the top, in Smoked Glass laminated to extra-clear or Amber colour glass. The 150 cm diameter top is also available in Calacatta marble.
The Lou table comes in both rectangular and round versions, in various sizes.
