Contemporary 1-3 Side Table, Polished Patinated Brass Cast and Green Marble

$3,295per item


1. Product description: The "1-3" side table is made of polished brass with patina on its backgrounds to give the tabletop’s cavities a depth appearance. This effect was obtained when the molten brass dripped on a cold surface, creating bubbles that gave the side table its characteristic irregular appearance. The brass is polished by hand for hours until its shine is in perfect condition and protected with a high-quality anti-stain varnish to prevent oxidation. High-end marbles are used for the base. Bessa prides itself on creating handmade functional art furniture built to order by highly skilled Portuguese artisans. 2. Inspiration: This piece is inspired by the first 3 years of one's life. During this phase, we make our first discoveries and experiences. These adventures always end up in a mess with things spread around the floor! When transported into the piece, this chaos results in unusual textures and patterns, and is materialized in a piece of art and design with rare beauty and many moments to remember, especially by parents. 3. Product dimensions: W 57cm (22.45"), H 41cm (16.15"), D 45cm (17.72") 4. Materials: Polished green Guatemala marble, hand-polished brass with patina and anti-stain varnish. Note: All Bessa´s pieces can be customized upon request. 5. Product style: Modern midcentury and contemporary. 6. Product design date: 2016 7. Product origin: Portugal. 8. Designer/ Builder: This sculptural side table was designed and created by the artist and designer Joao Bessa, founder of Bessa. 9. Installation/ cleaning and care: Easy to install. The brass top is mounted on the marble base without the need for screws. Easy to clean. The Brass is cleaned with a flannel or soft cloth to avoid scratching as well as the marble.
