Slab I Coffee Table

Shipping available worldwide – quote and taxes calculated at checkout. See what's included


An early Slab I coffee table with a free-form top. There is a divot and 2 burn marks which would have occurred when cutting the board. The electric saw would have hit a piece of metal (likely a bullet). That saw broke and the pieces of it made the marks and divot. This is an excellent example of Nakashima's interest in the history of the tree. Rather than throw the board away, he used it as it was simply another event in what he called "the 2nd life of the tree."
