G-Table K is made of copper and ancient Kauri wood that has been buried in marshes of New Zealand for 50.000 years. Its past was recorded in subtle and absolutely unique structure of tree rings. The pleasant scent of Kauri makes G-Table K not only an artistic object, but also an intensive sensual experience. Colors of table top by Holzano and copper base made with FiDU technology harmonize together and create a consistent entity.
Ancient Kauri is the oldest wood in the world while FiDU is the most innovative technology of flexible steel forming. Here the history meets the future. Despite the fact that our technology uses computer controlled manufacturing process, each product, thanks to the free steel deformation is unique as is the hand crafted Ancient Kauri tabletop. Both materials have another thing in common. Wood has a grain direction that affects its subsequent deformation whereas steel deformation depends highly on the direction of rolling.
We use parametric design software to generate G-Table form. Modifying a few variables lets us create a miniature model as well as a huge pavilion. Delicate structure of table legs may become stocky and dominating. All those factors cause G-Table to be not only an effect of the process, but also a process itself. G-Table’s base consists of parabolic forms. Made with FiDU technology, it reminds of vines or tree roots. Nature symbolizes a constant changeability and harmony that comes out of it. Diverse structure of G-Table refers to both natural forms and processes.
