An elegant dining table, also interpreted in a collection of round coffee tables.
CLARKE stands out for its metal structure that extends from the leg to run below the top in marble or solid wood. Available in an unusual ovoid form, it is reserved and forceful at the same time. The top in Calacatta Oro, Marquinia or Emperador marble, combined with the metal structure, underlines the rigor of the piece. Instead, the use of a top in a warm material like natural or stained solid ash on the metal base softness the austere image. Two different ways to interpret a design of great theatrical impact, in any dining room.
