MILES | Marble table
Round marble table
The contemporary take on furnishing: we form an attachment to objects not just because they simply fulfil a purpose, but because we like to see and feel them on a daily basis. When it comes to the shape of a table, there are certain immutable criteria that must be satisfied if the piece is to meet the demands placed on it.
By making a small but critical design change, Sebastian Herkner has successfully added a highly attractive and independent newcomer to this exacting product group: what at first glance look like single-piece columns supporting the tabletop reveal themselves to be delicately bundled rods that form an ornamental whole.
What makes the supposedly ‘classic’ bistro table a definitively contemporary representative of its genre is freedom of selection when it comes to materials – an endless variety of combinations and looks creating different tactile experiences. And when Wittmann turns a design into reality, there really are no limits to the creative options: the rods on the central column can be individually wrapped in leather, if desired.
