Ostinato is a design object that explore rhythm and repetition as ways to transform materials. A dimensional, linear, rigorous and repetitive pattern is over-imposed on the natural fiber of solid wood to create a rich texture, an enhanced sense of materiality.
Ostinato is a quietly majestic piece with a pedestal silhouette in clean, minimalist lines, handcrafted from rich materials such as European walnut, and a type of Nero Marquina marble rich in distinct fossilized shells of marine animals.
The table central pillar is constructed in solid European walnut which has been milled on a special device designed and build specifically for this project in order to carve the parallel lines into the material. The marble top is reinforced with a steel plate. The table is meant to be shipped in two pieces, the assembly is very easy to do, the table top is simply rotated to screw into the wood base.
The materials chosen are of best quality: solid walnut wood (60mm thickness), and a special type of Nero Marquina marble that feature very well preserved marine fossils. The wood is oil finished, the marble is sealed for increased protection agains acidic liquids and food stains.
