The story behind this product
Painstakingly designed, redesigned and redeveloped over the course of 3 years in a collaboration between Matthew Hilton & De La Espada with the goal to develop the ultimate solid wood extending dining table.
Legs constructed from 6 components, joined with lapped timber joints, glued long grain to long grain to maintain maximum strength. Hidden dowels help locate the joints during assembly.
The table includes 2 drop leaves, for three possible lengths, and a maximum length of 290cm, seating 12-14 people
Set upon sculptural legs, the tabletop opens effortlessly and holds the two leaves within a fabric-lined compartment when not in use.
