In Greek, Colossus means a statue of gigantic size and unsurprisingly, the table Colossus is, to say the least, impressive in size. The smallest version of Colossus, measuring 1.8 meters in diameter, accommodates 12 people around the table. The table’s solid base is made in concrete.
“I wanted to create a product that is the exact opposite to all the feelings of discontent in the world. I came up with the idea for a massive, solid round table as the world seems especially chaotic right now and that many people are disgruntled. The world needs big tables that bring lots of people together,” explains Chris Martin, co-founder and head designer, Massproductions.
Chris Martin wanted to create a form that represents solidity using pure concrete aesthetics. Working with different moulds, Martin found the perfect form. Colossus is an extremely solid table with a base that can support massive table tops. The base of the table is more like a piece of infrastructure than a component, like a part that constitutes the entire structure rather than something added to the form.
Colossus is available with concealed power strips at the centre of the table, where the cables leading to the electrical outlets are hidden in the concrete legs of the table. Colossus is ideal for larger homes as well as offices and restaurants.
