Concept

The top is set on four pillars supported by square legs. The symmetric pattern in the metal represents a geometric design of the head of a ram or the decorations repeated in the more ornate picture frames with elements from the classical architecture.The geometric references are subtly stated, drawing after drawing, becoming only mysterious traces now only revealed by name. The tops are marked on the edges by a steel profile, with the horizontal bands drawn from the world of the classical architecture.

The manufacture of Ares returns to a forgotten era, repositioning itself like a classical collection through the simplicity of shape. With the decisiveness of the elements, the materials and the metal inlays on the edges, and the same inlays in saddle leather and wood on the tops, it alludes to a timeless wealth in design. The different elements of the collection are available with three different finishes of veneer – ebony wood, walnut wood or zebran wood – or completely covered in full grain saddle leather; also the metallic details are available with three finishes: chromed, Silver varnished or matt brass varnished.
