A contemporary dining table echoing the tropical leaves through the dining room window.
This architectural dining table was made for the ultra-modern house of a precision engineer.The client had clear ideas about the shape of the top and leg units that he wanted. So I used the layout and figuring of the veneer to relate these two elements. The lines of the grain follow the leg angles, while the rippling in the sycamore creates a diamond pattern that gives the table a central focus.
I was also wanted to give the surface a leaf-like quality to relate it to the tropical plants in the atrium which can be seen through dining room’s glass wall.
The table includes two raised end panels to be used when seating a smaller number of diners. With flowers or sculptural ornaments and appropriate lighting these panels create a more intimate central dining area for 6 to 8.Needless to say, precision and finesse were a major priority throughout this project.
