Their Nero and Verde occasional tables, available through Serax, are the result of the duo’s search for the perfect harmony between wood, metal and marble, three natural materials each with a powerful voice of its own. They explain that a great deal of time and thought went into considering the different characteristics of each material and discovering the perfect balance between them.
The range includes a set of occasional tables, coffee table, a drawer table and drawer console in all of which the shapes and textures harmonise in a clean simplicity belying the complex thought process which has produced it.
All combine the deep, rich beauty of either black or green marble, Nero or Verde, (from which the range takes its name), with the sleek lines of the custom designed black metal frame.
Nero is an opulent black marquina with distinctive white veining while Verde evokes the green of mosses and forest streams.
The drawer tables and consoles include black stained oak, a natural bridge between the stone and metal.
The black metal frame is a simple geometric, barely there so that its ‘voice’ does not drown out the effect of the marble or the wood. Instead, it allows the table to appear to float, to affect its spatial framework without dominating it.
