delMare table by Eduard Locota
delMare table is hypnotic, is one of those pieces that mesmerizes people! I was starring a long time trying to understand its shape and form, because you dont find every day a table with such a unique shape. I was drawn to look at it for hours, as I would gaze into the depth of the sea floor. From where the origin of the name delMare meaning from the sea.

Unconventional shape is an understatement. As a designer, I have focused on building interest points from all angles, on all 3 axes. The view from every single side is completely different from the other; including the bottom marble side of delMare table ’that’s pretty rare for a table!
The unique and innovative engineered 3 foot design of delMare table, offers beside the spectacular shape also a stability out of the ordinary; with a very low center of gravity. Every piece are hand crafted from zero with primary materials white marble and acrylic glass. If you are curious, you may check the fabrication process on the website.
You may ask, why acrylic glass and not regular glass? The most transparent material known to man, and compared to glass: it gives less distortion, 7 x more impact strength as glass and much higher bending strength, it weight less than 2 x as glass. The downside of this material is that its more expensive than regular glass.
