This is the first table we created out of this batch full of character and number 3 in the beginnings of Amber.
We learned that Jacoba Ortega Diaz, the addressee of the memorial plaque attached to the entrance of the building, was the eldest of 9 brothers and sisters. Number 11 at Calle Mirador was a multifamily dwelling, a popular construction in the Barrio de la Merced quarter, where neighbouring families would share toilets and other resources such as the water well or “aljibe”. Further happenings in Jacoba´s life and trips took place in the company of like-minded bullfighters and other members of the flamenco dancing community and we couldn´t help but think of a large and humble dining table where the group could sit around for a hearty meal.
This is how this tabletop happened. The legs are made of massive beechwood that we coloured in a subtle light green so the top would pop.
The legwork is dismountable for transport.
