Gironde Extendible table

Description

The architectonic Gironde Extendible Table, emphasizes the purity of geometry and functionality.

The table was commissioned by a private client, an engineer, who originally conceived the piece for its newly renovated home, situated on the outskirts of Barcelona.

Robust and proportioned, the table is composed of four triangular pieces that are hidden below the central square board fixed intuitively. The simplicity of the table hides a reasoned, logical and harmonious structural system that guarantees the stability of the moving parts and the whole assembly. The center of the board has embedded a heat resistant ceramic piece to place hot cookware directly from the kitchen to table.The table is collapsible. Assembly is completed in minutes with few screws.

Gironde Extendible Table is a handcrafted piece, whose manufacturing process has been carefully controlled from idea to detail by the designer himself.
