The top of this incredible dining table is designed by John Lore, owner of Live Edge, from wood from the “oneTree” big Leaf Maple for the oneTree Exhibition at the Robert Bateman Centre, where 42 artists have created an amazing array of work all made from the wood of oneTree. read the tree story for more information.
The table incorporates 2 book-matched, figured maple, live edge slabs from the largest limb of the oneTree maple. Placed in a yin-yang orientation, the natural curve in the slabs creates a center space, which Lore has turned into a “tide-pool” using beach rock covered with inset glass. A secret drawer stores the handmade book which tells the history of the oneTree maple and the Exhibition project. The base for the table is made of solid black walnut incorporating lines to compliment the chairs.
The 10 accompanying chairs were designed by Stefane Dimopoulos of Live Edge. The seats and backs of the chairs are made from the most spectacularly spalted and figured wood from the oneTree Maple. The legs are made of solid black walnut. The seats and backs are carefully curved and sloped for excellent ergonomics, creating an all-wood chair that is light, comfortable and sports an updated mid-century modern aesthetic.
This table will be available to view as part of the oneTree Exhibit at the Bateman Centre in Victoria, BC from November 14th 2015 - January 14th 2016. As with all pieces from this wonderful Exhibit, this suite is expected to appeal to collectors.
