Heartwood from the tree trunk.
Design: Stefan Westmeyer
Wood from magnificent 100 to 120-year-old tree trunks is used to make the Authentic dining table. The selected heartwoods are used for the tabletop. The bark is removed from the pieces of wood and the wood beneath is brushed, so that the growth patterns of the trunk and the natural contouring of the external rough edges can still be seen and felt.

Capturing a life story

The grain of the wood tells the story of the tree’s life: where it grew, the soil properties, the supply of nutrients and water as well as the climate shape the tree and leave their mark in the heartwood. As a table, Authentic reveals a tree's history like an open book.

Wood – as it grew

Two or three pieces of wood from the middle of the trunk form the tabletop. Forming the sides of this solid wood table, the rough edge of the trunk has been buffed to bring out its natural growth pattern.
