Dining Table for Ten, Shaped Like the Manhattan Bridge

The Mannhattan Bridge is an iconic landmark crossing the East River in New York City. For today we would like to present an interesting design based on an idea that we enjoyed and believe so will you. Here is the press release we were sent: “Brooklyn-based furniture designer Richard Velloso drew inspiration from the iconic Manhattan Bridge when he created this dining table, made from a 6 foot long piece of drift wood that he found on the beach beneath the bridge and hot-rolled steel. He named the piece “An Ode to the Manhattan Bridge” and it measures seven-plus feet long and seats eight (or ten, if they know each other well). At first glance, one might think that the table’s surface is made of wood but slide a hand across its smooth, cool surface it becomes clear that it’s metal.” The table was built in Velloso’s workspace named Olga Guanabara (after his beloved dog, Olga, and a beautiful bay in Brazil). Find it appealing ?

    Truly stunning, but I know I would hit my shins on the ends of the driftwood if I sat at the head… that’s because I am clumsy!

    Looks great, but not too functional as a dining table. It would have made a much better console table though!
