Koba Table

Jean-Marie Massaud

Koba table is a timeless, built-to-last piece of furniture. At first sight, the table may be a deceptively simple piece of furniture with beautiful proportions characteristic of Massaud’s design language. However, a closer look reveals intricate details that make this table as much of a functional object as a showcase of extraordinary craftsmanship and first-rate natural materials. The table’s cone-shaped base is sculpted ins solid maple which ends with a soft, rounded bottom. The outer part of the tabletop is made in 4 cm thick Zimbabwe granite stone with a burnt, textured finish.  Integrated in the stone is the table’s central part, made in solid wood. This hand-carved part is not only a visual highlight, but it spins like a lazy Susan to facilitate the sharing of food around the table. It is easily removable to allow cleaning underneath as needed. The textured finish on the stone and hand-carved lazy Susan work remarkably well together, adding a touch of warmth and tactility to the piece. The table’s diameter is 160cm and it can comfortably sit 8 persons.
