Handmade Coffee Table with Pure Natural Cork
This breath-taking handmade coffee table is one of the most exclusive items in our assortment. Local Portuguese craftsmen carefully remove the best pieces of bark from the cork oak tree, and craft the raw pieces together to form an absolutely gorgeous top. This finished plate is then mounted on a custom-made steel base, covered with high quality electrostatic paint, to form a truly exclusive and exceptional furniture piece.
Birth of a Masterpiece
This handmade coffee table requires the expertise of our most experienced craftsmen. The process is very complex, and each step needs to be completed meticulously. Join us as we go through each of the different phases of production.
1. The Very Best Pieces
Every 9 years the tree bark of a cork oak is ready to be harvested. Skilled Portuguese workers carefully remove the bark by hand, this so not to harm the tree or the material. Out of this we choose the very best pieces for our Casca coffee tables.
2. Putting The Pieces Together
Now comes a crucial step. The artist needs to decide how to combine the different pieces of raw material, which all have their own texture and imperfections. With the same elements one can make endless different combinations. Yet thanks to years of experience, our specialists know very well how to get the most beautiful results.
The chosen combination is now carefully connected by hand to form a solid plate. This whole is then carved and rounded to a perfect and smooth shape that can be mounted on its base.
4. The Perfect Base
To create a base worthy of the exclusive table top, the finest steel is cut and welded together by hand. Once the structure has been polished to be perfectly smooth the whole is covered with electrostatic paint, which provide a stronger and smoother coating compared to traditional paint whilst being more sustainable.
