Terrace is a contemporary wooden coffee table whose design references hillside farming practices employed in mountainous regions of the Far East and South America. The table is functional art, with the ‘terraces’ carved from the wood to form sweeping contours that imbue a striking, sculptural elegance. It introduces a new aesthetic typology that offers a compelling and novel alternative to standard, flat table designs. Meandering across it’s centre is a beautifully crafted ‘mountain range’ with terracing along its length, and on each side are flat expanses that provide practical work space.
