The design for this table comes from a desire to provide a post industrial use for the waste material created by the stone countertop industry. Off cuts generated from cutting stone slabs into counters and surfaces are rarely used in secondary products and typically end as landfill. Stones discs cut from scrap materials are polished and stacked to form a weighted pedestal base for a variety of table sizes and shapes. An internal threaded rod keeps the stone in place under compression. A laminated white oak top echo’s the layered stone base. In order to keep the interesting stone base visible, a thin layer of felt cut to the shape of the top is used as a table cover instead of a draped cloth.
The weighted pedestal base makes the table suitable for commercial or residential applications while the natural and tactile materials bring a welcoming quality. Beauparlant is currently welcoming manufacturers.
