Le Building Table

Solid oliver ash wood
Produced by Figures de bois
Marseille, France

Made on order

Le Building table is made from regional wood and know-how and seats ut to ten people. With the desire to craft a collection of essential objects dedicated to Marseilles identity, contrasted, beautiful and rough, we started with a table inspired by the modernist building where the first model was to be used. Le Building Canebière is a XX century heritage architecture, designed by the architects Fernand Pouillon and René Egger. The building construction has signature round pillars and square beams, going through all its ten floors, that inspired the table design.

Marseille local crafts

The first prototype of the Building Table was made by the experienced furniture maker Christophe Claeys, established in Marseille and trained in USA, not only in American traditional assemblies, but also Japanese master joinery. The top of the table is designed with a weaving pattern underlined by the massive olive ash contrasting colouring.

Le Building Table

Le Building Table shape is wide and softly rounded with the legs off-set in the middle of the sides, making it as natural to be seated four people, as it is to be eight and even ten guests around it.
