The Resin Fossil Table Looks as Cold as Ice

Introduce a cold yet contemporary accent to any space with the Resin Fossil Table by Piergiorgio Robino and Stefania Fersini. Hand-made from fiber glass, the table features a striking design that evokes the very essence of crystallized water with its sharp edges and starkly translucent appearance.

The Resin Fossil Table is the first of designer Nucleo's Resinite collection that draws its inspiration from naturally occurring minerals. The company explains that, "As with the trace fossils where we find the imprint of the original item, in the same way the implementation process that creates the object leads to the destruction of its original." In essence, the table is created with imitated impressions that make it appear as though it were simply assembled from completely natural materials; this is counteracted with the primary material used being man-made resin.
