Fusing advanced engineering and artful design, the Surface Table is the world’s most beautiful and sophisticated table. An edition design, with an attractive investment potential, this extraordinary table delivers refined elegance with added theatrical magic.

The design is the result of a pioneering collaboration between industrial designer Terence Woodgate and Formula One design engineer John Barnard, who worked with highly skilled technicians to overcome the exponential challenges involved in forming a super-slim composite table on such a large scale.

Capturing the imagination, the dark mirror-like quality of the black surface is an enchanting optical spectacle. On close inspection, this pool of reflected light is transformed and more than a million black carbon fibre strands are seen to follow the full length of the table. At the heart of daily life, Surface Table is a stylish and very special meeting place.

The Surface Table’s extraordinary design process uses state of-the-art auto-sport technology to exploit the inherent rigidity and strength of carbon fibre. An impressive engineering accomplishment, the 2mm edge and long span defy the eye with improbable lightness and solidity.

Crisply tailored lines accentuate a slim, sculptural quality not seen in other tables. Designers Woodgate and Barnard were interested in taking the form of a standard table as far as they possibly could. It became a search for perfection. Radius corners, round legs, domed feet and rounded edges all accentuate the slimness of the design.

To take the Surface Table to its extreme – an astounding length of six metres – requires the largest autoclave in Europe. The table is manufactured at the industry’s leading carbon fibre facility which counts Ferrari, Ducati, McLaren, Lear, Porsche, Tesla, and Lamborghini as clients.

This world class team works within extremely small tolerances, pushing the process to the very limit of what is possible, while the lacquer painting of the table’s flat, even surface takes over 40 hours to finish perfectly.

Hand-crafted by Formula One engineers the Surface Table has three Limited Edition sizes. With impressive showmanship, these edition designs bring winning advantage to the most advanced auto-sport technology. By day it’s the quintessential executive meeting table, by night it transforms into a stylish setting for the most sophisticated dinner party.
