This dining table (or presentation table!) is inspired on and made with Persian carpets. The carpets are processed into table tops. The Dutch Masters of the golden age, Ferdinand Bol and Rembrandt van Rijn for example, already captured them in the 17th century portraits of the aristocrats. In the early 20th century, the Persian carpets on top of the table emerged to the average households.
The carpets are processed into table tops with a super smooth surface. Scars, which remain in sight after processing, are the evidence of the former live.
The dining table has a slender frame that caries the table top as if it is feathery light. The frame is magnificent in its simplicity and therefore combines beautiful with the table top. Ruben van Megen won the Red Dot Award in 2017 with this dining table. This table is also nominated for the Talente Award and the A’ Design Award.
Two colours for the frame are available; one mat anthracite steel frame with a hint of abalone shell and one hand polished bronze frame with a high-gloss finishing. Ruben developed the bronze frame specifically for the show in Milano in April 2018. This new frame fits the atmosphere of the Palazzo Francesco Turati perfectly and connects seamlessly with the show, which is inspired on the golden age. The dining table is made to order. A carpet can be supplied or picked out from our stock. A few tables are available in stock. Every piece is unique!
The table in the picture is 220x97cm. The table is also available in the measurements 150x87cm and 250x105cm. Price on request.
