fungi table limited edition

The Fungi Table is made of resin and a single wood plank obtained from a very large Beech log with its populations of fungi, recovered in the Italian Dolomite forest.  The plank is cut into two parts with a very thin blade and then joined so that in the corners the fungal woodgrain matches perfectly like a single bent piece, and also the resin – through a special process – is a single piece and not seen separations between horizontal and vertical resin edges. The invisible corner joining by Alcarol is also suitable for low tables, benches, consoles  and other similar types on request.

The natural wood live edges are frozen in a special extra clear resin resembling the winter ice that blocked the fungal activity. The transient beauty of Nature becomes eternal.

Wood decay fungi is always unique. No two pieces are exactly the same because there’s precise time, place and environmental conditions for its genesis.

lead time: approx. 14 weeks
