Epic Dining Table
GamFratesi for Gubi
Please note: Each marble slab will vary in appearance, as it is a natural material. We consider that part of the beauty of the piece – where a geometric form produced at a large scale can still be one of a kind. GUBI does not consider the marble grain a defect and will not accept a return based on the grain/color. Please see the image of the vibrant grey travertine, showing some of the variation one can expect.
GamFratesi designed the Epic Coffee Table for GUBI as a sculptural piece of furniture inspired by Greek columns and Roman architecture and named after the epic poems of ancient times. Made in Italy from travertine stone, the monolithic form emphasizes the materiality of the stone, the natural beauty of its veins, and the vibrant texture of its unique patina – in which a new detail can be discovered with every use.
Inspired by historical examples of travertine constructions such as the Colosseum and Saint Peter's Basilica in Rome, and the 1970s revival of the material in Southern Europe, the table combines two simple geometric shapes, the circle and the hexagon, with references to the classical Greek column.
Stone options in Neutral White, Vibrant Gray or colorful Burnt Red each create a focal point of differing intensity, bringing personality to private settings and naturalness and tactility to public interior spaces. The varying heights and diameters within the Epic Table Series mean a single monochromatic table can stand alone or be combined in dynamic clusters of varying height and color.
