Specially processed: Bolero table by Poltrona Frau

Luxury Italian furniture manufacturer Poltrona Frau launched a limited edition of 41 Bolero tables designed by Roberto Lazzeroni. Each limited-edition table has a specially processed marble top with varying surfaces and textures. Cut from a single block, the marble was extracted from the Monte Corchia quarry owned by ornamental stone manufacturer Savema. During production, the white Carrara marble was subjected to abrasive brushing to etch the surfaces randomly, creating a texture that changes according to the hardness of the marble. The resulting finish enhances the marble, giving it a 3D effect.

Despite appearing oval, the top is actually an irregular extended polygon with 12 sides that create a faceted effect. The top is supported by three crossbars, one on the floor and two under the surface. The finish is in Canaletto walnut veneer with a semi-glossy hand-applied oil finish.
