The main idea of the “Acca” collection was to design a solid table with invisible underside structure. We used two steel beams to stiffen the top in solid oak while maintaining the legs. These beams extend just 3 mm over the table top to be used as a heatproof mat for hot pots and pans. The assembling mechanism is visible while being structural. The name Acca comes from the Guava tree of Brazil Feijoa sellowiana “Acca”, known to grow in hot regions.
The “Acca” collection is entirely made of solid oak and raw steel with natural hematite. Each product can be purchased natural or black tinted. They are made to order, by the two of us, in our workshop in Paris. The wood we use comes from sustainably managed forests, which ensure the good renewal of resources for future generations.
