Named after the epic poems of ancient times, GamFratesi’s Epic Table for GUBI is a sculptural piece of furniture inspired by Greek columns and Roman architecture. Originally made in Italy from travertine stone, the table’s new variant marks the first time GamFratesi has worked with steel plates, which are galvanized, lacquered, and then treated with a series of hand-fin- ishing processes to create a unique surface expression for each table. The table’s monolithic form remains, now with an industrial expression, in which a new detail can be discovered with every use.
