Tense Material Wood

by Piergiorgio Cazzaniga

“A smart beauty, resulting from a thought and a know-how capable of transmitting a deep emotion through a wise accentuation of the peculiarities of the materials used”. Piergiorgio Cazzaniga describes in this way Tense Material, a collection of tables available in 5 heights and 36 sizes, capable of achieving large dimensions, up to 4 meter long, always keeping a perfect top tension. Dierent wood grain combinations, various shades and emotions to be touched. Tense Material is available in three dierent wood essences: natural oak, carbonized oak and national walnut. NATURAL OAK highlights wood grains and unveils time passing by, enhancing its beauty. The natural, wrinkled surface, is not just a visual experience, but also a tactile one. Every table is dierent from another, so every single product takes on a unique personality. This Tense Material’s nish brings warmth into the living room and ts into every context and furnishing style. Inspired to the Japanese technique, TenseCARBON starts from an oak base. By using natural acids a “burned” eect on the surface is got. Thus, wood looks black with intense and fully natural shades, that are unique and not replicable. Tense Material FINE WOOD IN NATIONAL WALNUT combines wood durability and resistance with elegance and lightweight, that are typical features of the collection. The smooth surface features warm and intense colours, with endless shades enhancing wood features. Tense Material Fine Wood perfectly ts into classical contexts, but it also stands out in contemporary spaces. The possibility to insert the CABLE COMPARTMENT DOOR and its large size make Tense Material suitable for workplaces, where meetings are so many and the need of accomodating more people around the table is frequent.

Tables featuring mono-material finishes. The important technological innovation it incorporates, combined with the tensioning capacity coof mthpeo nents makes it possible to build tabletops in large sizes. The 35mm thick tabletop is a load-bearing composite board built with an internal frame consisting of either aluminium proles and polystyrene ller, except for the brass top which has an acrylic resin honeycomb lling and two outer layers of aluminium. 35x35mm steel legs with internal structural tie rod. The reduction of the maximum sizes of the Italian walnut version (up to D120 x L300) represents the technical limits of the materials employed to build the tabletops.

OAK WOOD ANDCARBONIZED WOOD: Solid natural oak, 3 mm thickness, obtained from sustainable forests and subjected to biothermal treatment through the combined use of heat and steam, without the addition of chemicals. The wood retains its original beauty while the heat treatment changes its colour without using colouring agents, chemical dyes or harmful substances, resulting in totally natural, unique, irreplaceable hues.

Natural oak wood with transparent acrylic nish. In the carbonized wood, the characteristic “black carbonised” eect is obtained by applying a natural acid to the surface.

FINE WOOD | Italian walnut Solid Italian walnut, 2 mm thickness, obtained from sustainable forests and nely sanded into variously sized slats.This type of processing technique enhances the natural characteristics of the wood, granting the material dierent shades.Any visible design irregularities should be regarded as signs of quality and authenticity. Transparent acrylic nish. The edges and legs are covered in 2 mm-thick cut walnut, processed with a sawed eect (series of irregular cuts of dierent depths). The natural surface in variously sized slats is characterised by dierent shades which enhance the natural features of the wood and raw materials.
