Faug End Table
Industry West is proud to be the exclusive U.S. retailer of the Bucharest-based Materia Studio. Established in 2014 by a collective of young creatives, Materia focuses on the natural beauty of raw materials and sustainable design. The Faug End Table is a sculptural object with a bold geometry inspired by top-heavy brutalist architecture that can function easily in any space as seating or a small table.
Instead of staining, the wood has been repeatedly charred and brushed by hand to render its deep black color and texture that is inspired by the Japanese technique shou sugi ban. This natural, organic process generates an outstanding color and texture.
The material is 100-year-old reclaimed oak from collapsed houses and barns in Transylvania, with a geometric detail in brass, bronze or copper and as been sealed and finished with Danish oil.
