Raw Craft Table and Wine Rack One of a Kind, Handcrafted with Anthony Bourdain

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


This one of kind piece was hand-crafted with Anthony Bourdain for the Raw Craft series from The Balvenie. It was constructed from two bookmatched walnut slabs, seven different kinds of reclaimed wood and raw steel that's been acid washed for an aged look and then lacquered with a durable finish.
The center contains small pieces of reclaimed Ipe, oak, maple, yellow pine, white pine, Douglas fir and English elm. The base is hand bent, cut and welded for a unique one of a kind look.

See the making of the table on the Raw Craft YouTube channel beginning Sept 29.

This Raw Craft table is part of The Mats Christéen collection for Foundrywood, which offers unconstrained and very limited edition pieces meticulously handcrafted by Mats himself.

About the Maker

Mats Christéen’s path to founding his furniture collection has been as inevitable as it has unconventional and indirect. Raised in a culture where skillfully wielding a hammer was as likely as playing with Legos, Mats’ fondest early memories include laboring alongside his father building houses as well as the furniture to fill them. Scouring vintage stores and estate sales, Mats spent his youth rescuing and reimagining discarded treasures into objects unrecognizably fresh and new. As expected of many Swedes, Mats also began to skate shortly after learning to walk. Promptly distinguishing himself at the hockey rink as a talent to watch, he was propelled into a professional hockey career at only 17, and was soon drafted by the National Hockey League (NHL) to play for the Nashville Predators. The attention brought the notice of fashion scouts, and Mats found himself juggling the unlikely amalgamation of a successful high-fashion modeling career alongside the demands of professional hockey. Though the two worlds collided when a puck to the mouth knocked out his two front teeth the day before a coveted campaign photo shoot. While most can only dream of such high profile pursuits, Mats happily relinquished them for the ineludible and inescapable return to his first and primary passion, design.
