MALTHEN

Coffee Table

Design: Cristian Branea

A companion piece to the ALKAR Table, with bold geometry inspired by brutalist architecture.

The table base, with its impressive thickness, is constructed using solid Philippines Mahogany wood.
The wood has been repeatedly charred and brushed by hand to render its deep black colour and texture. We take pride in experimenting with materials and traditional crafting techniques.
Instead of staining the wood, we give it a charred and brushed finish. Inspired by the Japanese technique shou sugi ban, this natural, organic process generates an outstanding colour and texture.
It has been sealed and finished with danish oil.

The top is made of distressed and polished massive brass, waxed or left untreated to tarnish with use and age.
