AL-02 represents a further exploration of the intricate properties of aluminum, showcasing a blend of strength and delicacy in both physical and visual aspects. The AL series emphasizes large rectangular surfaces, enabling the material to both absorb and mirror its environment. These gentle reflections are contrasted sharply by the distinct edges of each plane.
At the heart of this table's design is white oak, cleverly concealing the joints that facilitate the aluminum's assembly. The use of slip joints and internal fasteners allows for complete disassembly of the piece. This construction approach not only prolongs the product's lifespan by simplifying repairs and replacements but also eases shipping challenges and enables efficient separation for recycling at the end of its life.
The aluminum undergoes a hand-brushed and waxed treatment, while the white oak is finished with a clear, matte, plant-based coating.
