Called Shrine Flat-table, the piece is based on a traditional Japanese design with eight legs.

The colour of the resin is more or less intense depending on the varying depths of the wood across its surface.

The information below is from Jo Nagasaka:


Flat Table peeled

The Shrine Flat-table is a contemporary interpretation of the traditional Japanese Hassoku dai, which means 8 legged table. The top of the Shrine Table can be separated from its legs.

In addition to the traditional table we added a layer of coloured epoxy poured on a wooden surface which grain had been gushed out to create different depth and by doing so various intensity in colour.

Shrine Flat-table comes in 3 Heights with the following dimensions: 750x300 (top) and total height of 540, 720 or 900mm.
