Manufacturer's Product Description

Designer: Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby

THE INSPIRATION OF TOBI-ISHI TABLE FROM THE EAST IS CLEAR EVEN IN THE NAME, WHICH REFERS TO THE ORNAMENTAL STONES USED IN TRADITIONAL JAPANESE GARDENS. THE FORM OF THE TABLE, WHICH IS DISTINGUISHED BY THE CANTILEVER TOP AND BASES THAT LOOK DIFFERENT DEPENDING ON THE PERSPECTIVE, ALLUDES TO THOSE SMOOTH STONES. WITH UNEXPECTED MATERIALS, IT BLENDS TECHNOLOGY AND HANDICRAFT. AFTER CONSIDERABLE EXPERIMENTATION AIMED AT CREATING A GRANITE LOOK, TODAY THE TABLE BASES HAVE CORES IN BAYDURЁ (STRUCTURAL POLYURETHANE FOAM) AND A WOODEN TOP. ALL THE PARTS HAVE BEEN TREATED WITH CEMENT GROUT TO CREATE A SORT OF SUPERFICIAL SKIN THAT RECALLS A HISTORY OF HIGH-TECH CRAFTSMANS.

TOP: MDF WOOD FIBRE PANEL
LEGS: HIGH DENSITY POLYURETHANE RESIN (BAYDURЁ)
FINISH: CEMENT GROUT
ADJUSTABLE FERRULES: THERMOPLASTIC MATERIAL
COUNTERWEIGHT: CAST IRON
