Perugino is a table made by assembling interlocking slats of solid wood, manually finished on all sides by planing. The pyramid-shaped load-bearing elements are stabilised by lightweight trusses, which support the whole structure with precise joints. The top is made of 2 cm thick extra-clear glass. 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.
Interlocking is the most respectful technique for the physiology of the wood, allowing us to make structures that are strong yet light, and highlighting the uniqueness and beauty of the material.
