Epic Dining Table - Round by Gubi
Named after the epic poems of ancient times, GamFratesi’s Epic Table is a sculptural piece of furniture inspired by Greek columns and Roman architecture. Originally made in Italy from travertine stone, the table’s new edition marks the first time GamFratesi has worked with steel plates, which are galvanized, lacquered, and then treated with a series of hand-finishing processes to create a unique surface expression for each table.
The Epic Table combines two simple geometric shapes, the circle and the hexagon, with references to the classical Greek column. The hexagonal column is an intelligent solution that enables a substantial expression to be efficiently constructed from minimal materials – and this new expression showcases and enhances the steel from which it is made, while maintaining that simplicity in its laser-cut, welded forms.
Cooler materials such as metal are seeing a renaissance in interiors, especially when paired with warmer surfaces such as wood and stone. Juxtaposing two very different materials, the iterations work well in combination.
