This metal-casting factory in Takaoka, Toyama Prefecture, casts various items from large bronze statues to metal signage and artworks by famous sculptors. We thought that if we could make use of the factory’s casting technique for furniture making, we would be able to realize an unprecedentedly beautiful metal product.
Utilizing this characteristic, the table base supports a bigger tabletop with a small leg, letting you sit comfortably from any position. As cast bronze still has a casting surface from the sand mould, the artisans finally polish the surface beautifully by hand. This process requires both physical strength and technique, even for skilled artisans, because they need to polish it while lifting the heavy bronze.
