Atelier Zumthor working table - Round legs

SKU: PZT-003-OKBW

€12.100

The minimalistic table is used in Peter Zumthor’s private house and his atelier in Haldenstein, Switzerland.

The tabletop made of grafted solid wood is minimally designed, with four solid wood legs supporting it. The shape is what anyone would imagine of a table. However, the size, thickness, position of the legs, materials, and finishes work together to create an exquisitely balanced beauty with a remarkable impression. The removable legs are available in both round and square corners. They are easily installed by screwing the legs into the top board.

The clean composition without ambiguity makes the material stand out, giving the feeling of touching raw wood. Each unit is made by hand at the Time & Style Factory in Asahikawa, Hokkaido, an area known for its furniture production. Two types of finishes are available: Time & Style’s original tannin black finish and beeswax finish, both of which do not affect the texture of the wood.

Wood Finish:
Quantity:

- There are individual differences in the wood, such as grain, tiger spots, and color of the material.
- This product is for indoor use only.
- If possible, do not set up furniture in places near heat-radiating devices and air-conditioner vents, as well as places exposed to direct sunlight (ultraviolet light), which could cause breakage and warpage of wood materials.
- Appropriate humidity for the operating environment is 40-60%. Drying may cause splitting or warping of the wood.
- Placing hot pots and wet glasses directly on this finish could generate stains. Use coasters, place mats, pot stands, etc.


----- BEESWAX FINISH -----

This is a completely additive-free finishing material containing sunflower seed oil produced in Hokkaido, as well as domestic beeswax. We uniquely developed this material to use as a secure and safe finish for furniture.
Sunflower seed oil prevents drying by penetrating into wood materials, and beeswax produces waterproof and antifouling effects by remaining on the wood material surfaces. As this material does not form a resin film on the surfaces like a urethane coating, the texture and feel of the wood are retained, and the aesthetic properties are enhanced over the years.
This finish enables products to be used for a long period of time by applying beeswax periodically for maintenance.

[HANDLING]
- Wiping products with a wet cloth removes beeswax from their surfaces. If wiping them with a wet cloth frequently, increase the frequency of maintenance.
- After applying beeswax, wipe it off completely. Residual beeswax could generate oil stains on clothes, documents, and books.
- There are cases where beeswax for maintenance varies in hardness depending on the season and humidity, and its components are separated. If it is hard or its components are separated, double-boil and mix it with a paddle before use.
- Beeswax does not contain 25 specific allergic raw materials etc.
- Beeswax is completely additive-free and uses natural raw materials only. However, if it reaches the eyes or mouth by mistake or if any abnormality is observed on the skin etc., see a doctor and show the beeswax just to be safe.

[MAINTENANCE]
1.Sand a product gently with abrasive paper (#240 to #320) with the wood grain.
2.Wipe off dirt and dust from its surfaces with a damp cloth that is tightly wrung out.
3.When the furniture surfaces become dry, apply an appropriate amount of beeswax onto a sponge and rub it with the wood grain.
4.Wipe off excessive beeswax from the furniture surfaces carefully with a soft cloth and polish them. In this case, wipe in a way such that beeswax is spread uniformly.

Furniture becomes available for use immediately after the application of beeswax. However, it is fixed more firmly a half or one day later.
Performing the procedures from one to four periodically (once a month during normal period between April and November, and once a week during the dry period between December and March) enables beeswax to be fixed, and a more stable effect can be expected. In particular, performing maintenance frequently is recommended soon after purchase because it leads to the prevention of breakage and warpage of solid wood materials.


----- IRON-WATER FINISH -----

If iron contacts oak materials, it turns black as a result of a chemical reaction with tannin that is contained in wood materials. The iron-water finish takes advantage of this characteristic to turn oak materials black naturally.
Unlike finishes that coat the surfaces with pigments and dyes, the iron-water finish is characterized by an expressive appearance that enables the texture of the wood grain to be sensed. As the tannin content varies among oak materials, their colors are different among them. In addition, the black color becomes thinner gradually across the ages.
Finish with beeswax after applying iron water.

[HANDLING]
- Prevent acidic liquids from adhering to the product surfaces. Highly acidic liquids, such as lemon and lime, could cause a change in color and discoloration.
- Those who have a metallic allergy may experience an allergic reaction.
- Iron water may give off a distinct smell. If the smell is strong, ventilate the room, such as by opening the windows. It decreases over time.
- Beeswax is applied to the product surfaces as the final finish. Wiping products with a wet cloth gradually removes beeswax from their surfaces. If wiping them with a wet cloth frequently, increase the frequency of maintenance.

- If the surfaces are sanded strongly with sandpaper, the wooden parts that turned black are also sanded and their bases appear. If the surfaces are fuzzy, use fine sandpaper of #400 or higher to sand the surfaces gently and then apply beeswax to finish up.
