The Sultanas Table Represents the Identity of Monterrey

Sturdy, strong and simple, the Sultanas Table is inspired by the industrial city of Monterrey, Mexico. Made predominantly out of concrete with a tempered glass top, which happens to be two of the city's main exports, the piece of furniture has a bold presence while not necessarily stealing the show. Instead, the Sultanas Table falls into the category of the strong and silent type.

Created by Mexican designer Jorge Diego Etienne in Ivan de la Cruz's concrete workshop, the Sultanas Table celebrates his native country while reinterpreting contemporary artisanal work. Concrete may be considered a modern material, but it still requires a lot of manual labor. A limited creation, the Sultanas Table is available for purchase through ADN Gallery in Mexico City.
