Ant Table by Bas Froon (garden view)


After the development of the of the ‘sexy legs’ coffee table I got the request to develop an outdoor table based on the same principles, but suitable to seat 6 people. The green environment was – besides the practical necessities – a reason to choose to use a white and and glossy finish.

The client wanted a table that is able to stay outside¬†year –¬†in a environment where the trees leaves lots of residue on the furniture and close to the sea. So build quality and choice of materials was crucial. Legs and tabletop is built out of one sheet of waterproof okoume multiplex to minimise waste. The tabletop is strengthened at the underside to avoid sagging over the years.

The wood is sanded and coated with two layers of epoxy for waterproofing and a super smooth finish. Finally the high gloss DD-coating (used on boats) gave it a very shiny finish and makes it easy to clean after a Dutch autumn storm.

Can be produced upon order. Contact me for more details and pricing.
