looking against the light, the padi sofa table reveals his subtle highlight: round carved shapes on seemingly different levels that resemble the exciting visual of rice terraces. it transports the feeling of a late afternoon when the farmers relax after a long day of work and gaze over the fields.
padi (indonesian) = rice plant.
the padi sofa table is inspired by the rice terraces of java that can mainly be found in the volcanic hills of central java and along the shores.
especially the slopes along the southern coast line are adorned with beautiful geometric terraces, contributing to fantastic and mystical views over the fields until the southern sea.
the top of the padi table – designed by bagus prabowo – is crafted from dark brown palisander wood with wild exotic grain and orange inclusions. it has a wonderful array of lines to carve along.
the table legs, made of fine metals, seem to be lifting and presenting the wood planks. their shape is derived from a leave of the upper part of a padi plant that sticks out by 45 degrees.
TRAD. WOOD CARVING
the organic round shapes are the result of a sophisticated manual process:
the craftsmen first choose the grain-line they want to emphasize, then carve along them and finally shape inclinations that create the terrace optic while maintaining an even surface that guarantees the safe usage of the table top.

the padi sofatable is crafted from fine palisander wood. javanese palisander belongs to the dalbergia latifolia species, a tropical hardwood native to south and south-east asia. its beauty lies in its dark brown color and exotic orange and purple waves. we use palisander from state owned plantations and private cultivation.
