“I had an idea of assembly behind it, almost like Meccano, a sort of metal Lego that everyone played with when I was young. It was logical to turn it into a system that can be assembled by hand, and at the same time be extended and joined together for longer tables.” Chris Martin
The name, Ferric, refers to the Latin word for iron and the table itself is a celebration of iron work. Here metal plates are bolted together with cross braces, much like the ones you find on bridges. The legs consist of iron profiles and plates, which combines perfectly with the tabletop in natural wood.
The wooden top rests on a steel frame carefully optimized for stability and sustainability. The metal structure gives the table its solidity and a lot of details went into making the connections beautiful and considered. Even small details such as the wingnuts are powder coated to match the frame colour.
“Most people would just leave them untreated from the supplier. But we are so keen on details, so we made the effort to paint them. “ Chris Martin
