This table represents three different aspects of time. First, the salvaged legs were re-turned, quartered, and then turned ‘inside- out’, exposing the ‘hidden history’ of the inside of the form, exposing new wood wrapped in an old ‘skin’ – while immediately placing the table into a contemporary context.
Secondly, the shapes and patterns on both the top surface, and each of the legs, hark back to a time of early colonialism.
And finally, the swamp kauri itself is more than likely from a time long before human beings even arrived in Aotearoa.
This large table seats up to 12 people comfortably, and is ideal for board room or family dining settings. It’s also literally built to last generations (or long meetings).
Time Table $ 7,500 NZD.
