New look for Tense table offered in four different and surprising finishes. Wood, brass, stone and Ebano black marble dress up one of MDF Italia’s bestsellers within its collection, thus creating a new range typology: Tense material. Four noble and ancient materials, that have always been used by man to create furniture, here are processed with a soft brushing that highlights their material qualities. They dress up Tense, arousing new tactile and visual features and stimulating senses. Brass, a perfect and rigorous surface, made soft by surface brushing that evokes ancient golds. Stone, reconstructed by using river stones to get a natural surface made soft by an accurate brushing. Quite a wrinkled and lived wood, a real visual and tactile experience.
