About

The UÑA table is fable, mythology and design blended together. The striking contrast between the stone’s solid weight and the apparent frailty of its legs make for a most intriguing game of tension and levity. The name derived from the Greek word onyx, which means that: nail. The myth tells that Venus gave his son Cupid bow and golden arrows; the arrows were of two kinds: those that had a golden tip for love, while the others were lead, to keep oblivion and ingratitude in the hearts. One day, Cupid cut the divine nails of Venus with an arrow while she slept. He left the clippings scattered on the sand and the Gods of Destiny turned them into stone, so that no part of the divine body would ever die. The onyx and its mythology inspired us to create a dialectic on full and empty planes: a pair of mineral cuts in balance and constant play between the unique beauty of the material and the invisibility or apparent fragility of its support, whose thin lines suggest lightness and seriousness at intervals, just like the characters that inspire his name. This limestone rock, turned into onyx (a variety of agate or chalcedony) by the heat and pressure of metamorphic events, has almost magical qualities in its delicate and watery veins, the brightness it acquires when polished and the transparency that allows the passage of light through the cold surface with unparalleled warmth: it is considered a semiprecious stone for obvious reasons. Each quarry tells a very specific story about the zone it´s in, Mexico being the largest producer of onyx in the world. In the states of Durango, Coahuila (Comarca Lagunera), Zacatecas and Puebla, there are large deposits with a wide range of color compounds of the most diverse shades of green, red, yellow and white.
