Hexagon Illusion Table and Chairs Set Made of Solid Teakwood

A keen proponent of sustainability, John Brevard’s handcrafted sculptural furniture aims to celebrate materials natural to our earth. Made from sustainably harvested teak wood from the PT Perhutani forestry reserve in Indonesia, this beautiful, unique dining set is hand carved by skilled artisans and joined together to form Brevard’s signature parametric designs. This illusion table comes with six custom cut chairs that slide flush under the table to create a hidden effect. Reflecting Brevard’s belief that our world is made of fractal geometries, this clever dining set features repeating hexagonal and triangular patterns in both large and small scales. Equilateral triangles represent strength, with the upward pointing triangle symbolizing the masculine and the inverted triangle symbolizing the feminine. Six triangles conjoin together to form a hexagon, the strongest shape found in nature. Hexagons signify the omnipresence of consciousness and significance distributed evenly throughout the universe, creating harmony and balance in any room. This sculptural table is meant to empower and unite us. This piece is currently available in a versatile deep brown stain. Custom finishes are available for custom orders. About the materials: Teakwood has long been prized for its durability and versatility. Long used for furniture and decoration by elites in its native Southeast Asia, teakwood then made its way to Europe by way of Dutch merchants. In the west, it’s often used for shipbuilding, due to its hardness and ability to withstand humidity and ward off dry rot. Unlike more common woods such as pine and oak, teak retains its natural oils and rubber even after being felled and processed. Because of this, teak has greater naturally weather-resistant properties than almost all other wood. The oils and rubber effectively weatherproof the wood, making teak an ideal choice for outdoor furniture. The wood is also naturally protected from dry rot and from fungi and parasites that can destroy other woods. Given the long growth period of teak (typically 80 years until maturation), Brevard uses sustainably cultivated teak without irrigation or fertilizers for this collection in order to protect earth’s natural habitat. All pieces are made with the highest quality (Grade A) teak from the heart of the tree to ensure maximum durability and versatility. This Hexagonal table is limited edition by John Brevard. The chairs slide into the table to create a seamless look. This piece is made from kiln heated teak wood and is made to order.
