maple, and stainless steel
The (isla) coffee table was an exercise in emulating minimalism in architecture. Simple lines in a rectilinear plane and overstated scale in length give the (isla) its drama. Using natural materials in their purest state add to the minimal statement. Isla is “island” in Spanish. The name was derived from the thin strip of stainless steel that divides the two solid planks of maple that make up the surface of the table. Custom sizes & finishes available upon request.

"My influences come from the great designers and architects of the 20th century. Some of the greatest works from that era are "timeless", and can still fit in the most modern of settings. To me that is an ultimate goal to strive for. As designers it is our job to create the elements that will carry us into the next millennium."
