Tranquebar Coffee Table
Created where tradition meets innovation, the Tranquebar Coffee Table presents the rich heritage of the Tamil Nadu region in the perspective of modern design. The acclaimed designer Boris Berlin found his inspiration in the colours, the shapes, and the culture. Once his ideas and the distinctive pattern had materialised, he returned to India, where the collection is produced by Indian artisans. The granite base is hand crafted by traditional stone carvers in Tamil Nadu, South India. Each piece of granite is unique with natural variations in the pattern. There may be sand holes, glass veins and porosities on the surface. All of this occurs naturally and is part of the individual character of the object. The granite stone that has been hand carved has been brushed with natural coconut oil. The Black Galaxy Diabas granite stone is sourced locally to the stonemasons from government regulated quarry within 50 kms of their workshop, and the toughened glass and stainless steel bracket is produced, assembled, and shipped in Europe.
