Helium 4

Solid Canaletto walnut, solid Ashwood

240x85x76 cm

Helium 4 is the large version of Helium

Made with leftovers coming from the production of veneers, it's architecture is strictly correlated to it's design. Form and function in the most strict relationship, where function is not regarding it's final use (a table) but it's structure. How can you design a table so big, using mostly 10 mm. thick solid wood? This was the effort, to make an incredibly lightweight table, yet beautiful, stiff enough to hold itself even with such a spam, 240 cm.
