Belgian artisans and designer brothers duo Devi and Denneb Vervaeke of Nestor & Rotsen create original, handmade tables based on unique processes and patinas, scanning boundaries between classical finish techniques and reproducing natural textures.

Every organic table design reflects the beauty of natural imperfection.

 

The Nestor & Rotsen Franklin Table is sculpted in 1 piece and finished with a mix of marble powder and lime plaster.

Besides the Franklin Table, Nestor & Rotsen even offers a collection of tables with a table top in handmade ceramic tiles and a powder coated steel frame, as this Mosa Table, that can be added to your contemporary, minimalist or classic home interior.

Devi Vervaeke of Nestor & Rotsen finishing their latest creation, the ‘Mille’ Table.

I am very grateful to Devi Vervaeke for allowing me to publish ‘en primeur’ the very first pictures of the latest and gorgeous Nestor & Rotsen table.

The ‘Mille’ Table, that is a masterpiece and that required a lot of patience to create, has a size of 3m75 and consists of more than 1000 narrow pieces of ceramics that are individually brought together in an organic whole. The ceramic strips are not sawn but are completely custom made, which means that all sides are glazed. The base is following the contour of the tabletop, so both are in complete harmony.

For the glazing work the designers searched for a kind of metal look with a bronze pigment seen in the depth. The light coming in, determines whether metal or bronze is predominating.

The table was selected for the summer exhibition 2018 of the Historical Museum of Potttery in Torhout -Belgium.

Next spring the ‘Mille’ table will travel the world to be presented in various international galleries.

With his ‘floating stone’ table collection, architect and designer Benoît Viaene wants to give his own interpretation of providing airiness and fragility to the stone. The imperfection of the stone together with the organic shape of the table emphasizes the vibrancy and dynamism of each unique piece.

The ‘patina minerale’ collection, another collection of tables by Benoît Viaene, includes a range of elegant, minimalist and timeless design tables, made of wrought iron with a unique mineral patina table top. This definitely is a collection of tables with an authentic and original look, available in different shapes, which can be perfectly integrated in any type of interior.

“Why should a table be square, rectangular, oval or round? Probably we are used to it.”  says Bieke Casteleyn.

With her ‘Out of Line’ table collection, Bieke introduces a unique table concept that does away with all traditions. ‘With their unique, organic shapes, all the models create an unexpected but extremely surprising experience for the user.’, is to read on the website of the Belgian designer.

As an interior designer and product creator Bieke Casteleyn wanted to come up with something out of the ordinary, out of line.

Each table is completely handmade, with a lot of attention to finish and detail. The natural and imperfect character of the polished stucco lustro gives the Out of Line table its unique look.

Besides the Out of Line stucco lustro edition, Bieke even has created the Out of Line marble edition, using marble that is optimizing the sculptural effect of the organic shaped table.

Various types of marble can be used, adaptable to your home interior.

Finally, I wanted to share some pictures of stone tables designed by Axel Vervoordt, as these pieces definitely are a source of inspiration for furniture designers from around the world.
