NOTE:

This writing table is the first of a series of tables in polyester resin and a continuation of the Shelves series. 
Polyester resin is used for its amiable appearance. The resin that is used has a base that is transparent and non-coloured. With pigments we achieve the desired colour and opaque quality. The piece undergoes a series of steps in which it is casted, milled, sanded and polished. 
I like to combine the polyester with wood, a natural combination since the resin was developed for the naval industry. I use ash-wood to accessorise the tabletop with several functional elements; a lamp, a vase and a small storage compartment to become an object you will enjoy for it’s humble aesthetics and elegant functionality.
