I saw this while we were at
ICFF a couple of weeks ago, and while it was (and is) spectacular, I had no idea it was coated with natural silver, which makes it extremely unattainable to the average consumer. I really do think it’s amazing, but, come on, if you’re spending that kind of money on a coffee table you might need to visit some third world countries to get some perspective.
“Superficial or authentic? This striking piece puts equal emphasis on surface and substance. Using a proprietary process, a massive block of wood is coated with a brilliant layer of natural silver, and a bloom of tarnish around the knots and cracks, resulting in a piece whose stunning surface does nothing to hide the individuality and character of the wood beneath.”
