Tense Material Heritage

by Piergiorgio Cazzaniga

The latest addition to the Tense family, a table designed in 2009 by Piergiorgio and Michele Cazzaniga, it somehow represents a leap into the past, reviving an ancient craft tradition. In the new Tense Material Heritage, the natural or black painted oak tabletop is finished with a handmade process known as ‘sgorbiatura’ (wood hand carving). This technique involves carving the wood in an irregular manner to achieve a wavy effect and offer an intensely tactile experience. This meticulous process – which requires several hours of work for each table – completes a frame that embodies the technological and industrial innovation that enabled it to reach considerable dimensions.

Steel legs, 35x35 mm section, with internal structural tie-rod. The 35 mm thick top is a load-bearing composite panel made from an internal aluminum profile frame and a polystyrene filling. Natural or black-stained oak finish, transparent acrylic surface finish. Edges and legs covered with 3 mm thick solid wood. The fineness and special workmanship of the tops can result in differences in finish and tone. Therefore, any visual irregularities in the design, shading, and non-uniformity of the surface and color of the material should be considered unique and valuable characteristics.
