Palestrina is a table made with planks of solid wood, manually finished on all sides by planing.
The entire manufacturing and finishing process is carried out manually in our workshop. The wood used for this piece is Juglans Regia – common Italian walnut; not dried but “raw”. This wood belongs to the Latin tradition of furniture-making and features an extremely compact fibre which can, however, be worked without too much difficulty; it is therefore highly suitable for household items. Over time the wood hardens and becomes extremely resistant, and oxidises slightly to take on a progressively warmer amber colour. In Palestrina, the need to define an image of stark beauty led to the minimalist prismed top supported by two uprights. The undulating finish on the solid wood gives this table a vibrant presence. Customised and made with European cherry, Slavonian oak, maple.
