New tables: From material fetish to the Zen factor
by Jasmin Jouhar | 4/11/2017
Be they short or long of leg, simply unique or extravagant: there’s no end to the variety of tables in Milan.
From the experience acquired by Buratti brothers in the field of joinery and woodwork, comes hiwood, a project that explores the world of present-day manufacturing technologies and the new formal expressions made possible by them. Made from solid oak, a highly appreciated natural material, hiwood is a table featuring a surprising shape: tapered on every side, it sheds the table's habitual connotation as a massive, thick and squarish piece of furniture and becomes an extra thin sheet of high quality wood. In this manner, solid parts become sheets and thickness is cancelled out, resulting in a unique geometry, pared down to the minimum. Stability is ensured by tie rods concealed from view, which, besides making hiwood very sturdy, make it possible to obtain highly sophisticated joints, endow the project with a strong technical spirit, and compose a table that is pure, elegant and extreme in terms of design, technique, classic quality. Ideally suited for the household environment, hiwood tables can have rectangular or square tops, in two finishes, natural oak and varnished oak in two variants: dark and hash gray. The quintessential, archetypal structure of hiwood is exalted by the design of the top and the legs, which feature curved, tapered shapes, and reveal the typical texture of solid wood to the touch.
