The round table was one of Jules Wabbes’s favorite creations. It was specifically designed for the house of a private client in Antwerp in 1966. The thick table top is made of rectangular blocks of wenge (Millettia laurentii) glued together to form an end grain board. The palette of dark brown is wonderfully warm, sober, and subtle. It was inspired by a traditional technique of wood joints utilised notably for butcher blocks. The stand is composed of five raw bronze cast elements screwed onto a central pentagonal shaft. Each element has a triangular, but curved, section whose three edges are polished, a subtle detail that lightens and emphasises the structure. A central table stand is most convenient, as none of your guests will experience the discomfort of being squeezed by an outside or lateral table leg. This table was conceived as an homage to wood and metal.
