What does a block of white Carrara marble do with millennial New Zealand wood? A two million euro table. It is called “Timeless”, to emphasize the millenary characteristic of the two materials. The table was designed by the Italian-Albanian artist Helidon Xhixha and created by a group of 12 Italian companies.
The 5-meter long table contains a sophisticated latest-generation clock, which was presented at the Salone del Mobile in Milan in 2019. The stainless steel surface is made by Xhixha by sculpting the material with a cold working technique: the steel was molded, then welded and finally polished to obtain the mirror effect. Inside, between the two materials, a led light band. To complete the project, a Murano glass seat designed by the architect Marco Piva is produced following the precepts of the ancient art of Venetian blowers.
