An elm tree born almost two centuries ago and grown through daily changes and the great revolutions of history, in the green heart of Austria.

During the nineteenth century, elms were a widespread presence in all private and public parks, but in the early twentieth century they were decimated by a disease, graphiosis. That’s why this tree, planted in a private park between the years 1830 and 1840, could be considered an absolute rarity.

Created from the original shape of the tree, where a main branch joined the trunk, the crack is the salient feature of the table. It can be filled with resin to create a single plan, or it can be left open, to accentuate the powerful expressive force of a true protagonist: yesterday in an ancient park, today in a new interior landscape.

Elm wood top with wax oil finish.

Transparent painted iron bases.
