The new Band range of tables consist of specially selected European marbles which are cut, polished and then lacquered with a protective finish to give a durable and stain-resistant surface. The solid marble is then encased in a warm and elegant metallic rim to give a distinctive, contemporary aesthetic.
The Band range is available with single colour marble tops or two tone options from the new palette, which include the beautiful and sophisticated Rosa marble and a timeless Verde marble. Handcrafted techniques are then used to combine selected marbles in a striking and graphic pattern. Bases are powder coated in colours from the new palette and combined with precision machined brass feet, hand brushed and finished by our craftsmen.
"Our new Band Collection brings the natural beauty of coloured marble together with warm brushed brass to create a pairing of materials that elegantly enhance each other. I hope that the combination of materials and shapes has created a warm contemporary and timeless range"
Bethan Gray, an award winning Welsh designer, has an extraordinary background. Her family hails from an ancient Rajasthani clan that over centuries migrated across Arabia and Persia before settling in the Celtic heartland of Wales. It's a heritage that weaves a rich pattern of influences and inspirations, which draw on craft traditions of both East and West.
Bethan's signature style reveals a love of detail, tactile textures, and luxurious materials such as semi-precious stones, marble, wood, and hand-tooled leather. Intricate patterns of light and dark, texture, purity of line, clarity, harmony and a connoisseur's eye for detail define her highly original style.
Her skill in combining cutting edge design technology with a deep knowledge of the values of traditional craftsmanship resonates across cultures. Her travels in India, Asia, the Middle East, Northern Africa, and South America were fuelled by her love for and curiosity about their arts.
Welsh born Bethan Gray is best known for her liveable, honest, and warm designs. She first came into recognition when she was awarded the Habitat Innovation Award by Tom Dixon at New Designers in 1998. Working closely with Matthew Hilton during his residence at Habitat, Bethan was made Head of Furniture Design before embarking on setting up her own studio in 2008.
