The Earth table is made out of resin, and a very rare type of New Zealand’s wood called millenary Kauri. The wood comes from ancient Kauri trees and is 50 000 years old. But besides these cool characteristics, the table looks kind of cool anyway.

The table top is made of resin, with the wooden parts metaphorically representing the continents. The contrast between the wood and the transparency creates a beautiful contrast.

The base of the base features dark iron that symbolizes the construction of new buildings after the 911 terrorist attacks. Besides all the symbolic aspects, the design of the table is unique and beautiful.
