Meta, which means “half” in Italian, is a table that fuses primitive and modern design using simple Euclidean geometry.
The monolithic style legs are carved from a single block of stone to form two semi-circular columns that create a “facet like” appearance. The left leg features a 4” hole that pierces through the centre—adding a sculptural element that creates a visual offset to the stone’s heavy mass.
The exterior face of the legs is sealed with a gloss finish, while the inside is treated with a matte finish; creating a subtle contrast between the two surfaces.
Handcrafted from Nero St. Gabriel, Meta Table is designed by Phillip Jividen. Inspired by nature and minimalist designs, his work reflects a sense of beauty through simple but highly refined forms and use of material. His works are made in collaboration with a diverse selection craftsmen and fabricators, producing small quantities and limited edition pieces.
This table exudes sheer elegance that has a delicate proportional balance of classic sophistication and minimalism that suggests a sense of purity and playfulness.
