Pipecraft has created a bespoke La Casita dining table base, after being commissioned for an unusual private project for a client’s own home. The project required particularly high skills to ensure the finished product was stable, suitable for purpose and aesthetically pleasing.
The intent was to create a visually very different table-base in mirror-polished stainless steel, which would also be capable of supporting an extremely heavy, elliptical, stone top with an overall size of 2,500 mm x 1,000 mm. Stability was extremely important, as the top had been specially sourced by the client in 20 mm thick marble.
Due to the overall size, the marble top obviously weighed a substantial amount. Bonded to a 3 mm stainless steel laser-cut sheet; a 10 mm thick, mirror-polished, stainless steel, elliptical sheet was then sandwiched onto the underside to achieve a downwards reflective finish. This enabled the underside to reflect onto the specially sourced floor covering and the three circular legs.
Each of the legs has a 350 mm outside diameter. Rolled in a heavy wall tube, they were then capped off at the top and bottom. Finally, they were shrouded by external, mirror-polished, rolled and fabricated covering sleeves.
Pipecraft’s skilled engineers are delighted to have created something really special. A company spokesperson said: “We recently accepted an order from a private client for the bespoke dining table base and components.
“Throughout the design, we liaised with the clients and their architects regarding the design intent and fitness for purpose. This table was produced for a very discerning client and is the focal point in the lounge of a very prestigious new build on the banks of the Thames.”
