Terra Firma by Ross Didier

Elegent oak tables that combine aesthetics and solidity.



BY jesse

April 12th, 2010


Terra Firma tables evoke memories of the archetypal refectory table but borrow structural techniques utilised in modern truss bridges, where the tapered form creates a natural trapezium to the floor.

The original intention was to design a table that was versatile, rigid, light weight and practical where the strict engineering is disguised within a refined and sculpted aesthetic.

Terra Firma is manufactured using a combination of plantation grown solid timber with veneered board and the fabrication is designed to be flat packed using specialist fixings which allows these timber tables to be efficiently transported then easily assembled onsite with a simple hand tool.
