Entry Description

Marrying the Lost Wax casting process, rooted in nearly 6000 years of history, with current innovations in technology to re-imagine an historically compelling design from the 1750s. Aesthetically distilled to its purest and most striking elements, the Bronze Shaker Table utilizes a cast base with mortise and tenon joinery. Subtle radius’ offer strength without clouding the refined proportions of the base.

Zero Profile table leaf extension option designed out of high carbon steel by Matthew Maté Lighting.

Utilizing scraps, offcuts, bronze engineer’s rings and smaller piece of wood to build our “patchwork” pieces allows the studio to access less desirable wood for these projects, as flaws are buried below the visually rhythmic patches. The studio draws each slab into a computer program, as a canvas, which allows the team to compose a finished piece as a drawing. All details executed flawlessly by CNC and chiseled and honed into place by hand.
