Bespoke Brutalist Meets Japan, Reclaimed Hardwood, by P. Tendercool

$9,680per item

About

This is our very first 100% in-house designed and created table, or desk, or console. While we are known for mounting our creations on sand cast bronze or brass bases, we do not want to limit ourselves. We went back to the basics on this one: pure and honest woodwork: no nails, no bolts, just able hands. We love architecture, we love Japan, and yes, we adore George Nakashima. For the top and bases, we selected reclaimed hardwood, Teak wood from an old house near Ayutthaya. When our Bangkok friend and long-term fan saw this, he couldn't resist ordering one for himself! Japanese inspired, Belgian design. Model: FTOP-PT31-GT-DO Top: Reclaimed Teak wood, 4.5cm thick Top finish: Diamond oiled Base: Reclaimed Teak wood Base finish: Diamond oiled Dimensions: 250 x 96 x 74 cm (W x D x H) 98.4 x 37.8 x 29.1 inch P. Tendercool FTOPs, fantastic tables made with old planks   Bespoke, handmade tables made with reclaimed wood; sand-cast bronze, brass or aluminium bases   Reclaimed wood While P. Tendercool may not be greener than your average Martian, he does not kill trees! P. Tendercool, run by Belgians Pieter Compernol and Stephanie Grusenmeyer, is based in Bangkok, Thailand. We are ideally placed to go wood-hunting: every month or so we organize a sourcing trip along 2nd and 3rd generation woodshops in remote villages, meeting locals who buy up abandoned houses, rice-barns and forgotten structures, often dating back 100 years. While Thailand has no wood industry left, it was spoiled for choice and quality in the good ol’days days. Some of the best exotic tropical woods were available and it is our Mission to score these and turn vintage floors, beams, and pillars into truly unique furniture.  We buy our wood in very small quantities, often just enough for one table: truly reclaimed and truly unique furniture.    Unique one-off Every FTOP table we create is indeed unique, and this shows: we use traditional wood-working techniques to join massive beams and refrain from levelling the bottom of the table. We naturally sand to remove splinters but we want our clients to see we use genuinely old wood, not machine-made-to-look-to-be-reclaimed wood. The top-edges are the perfect witness, uneven, almost Brutalist at times, but always unique and very touchy-feely. Bottoms and tops will more often than not show imperfections we cherish: traces of the past: old wooden pegs, old joinery, some restored holes, all signs of the woods previous life. We also refrain from using big belt-sanders, which means you will see and feel our hands when you check the surface. And re-check. Re-check...   Real wood, no veneers Very few pieces of furniture are still being created with real high quality hardwood. While we take every precaution and carefully match humidity levels with international standards, we can never forego the fact that wood is a living, breathing material which will be influenced by excessive temperature and humidity fluctuations. There is always a chance that wood will retract or expand slightly with the changing of the seasons. Rest assured: to date we only received two remarks from worried client in eight years and in both cases, we advised how to remedy.   Lead-time 12 weeks.
