Dining tables from Poltrona Frau, Designed by Studio Massaud

Product description

Jean-Marie Massaud was inspired by the sharing friendly culture of the East with this design with a circular Lazy Susan top for the new version of Jane, the iconic table presented by Poltrona Frau in 2017. The generous round marble top replicates the visual strength of the original Jane table, with two different aspects. The centre can be rotated, inviting diners to share food, and the outer part is composed of four extractable radial sections, simplifying maintenance and cleaning. The precious beauty of Calacatta gold, Emperador or Fior di Pesco marble top, enhances Jane’s sculptural presence. The four columns supporting the top also create a material effect: imposing and essential, they have a solid beech wood core surrounded by high-density MDF panels, which are shaped and veneered in moka-stained ash. The ingenious steel junction between the legs and the top makes the top appear as if it were floating in space. The Lazy Susan version of Jane also offers the opportunity to enrich the top with several surface combinations: the central section is available with a glossy or semi-glossy finish, while the outer part always has a glossy finish.


Jane. The table as an organic and free element in space. Jean-Marie Massaud subverts the balances of this object to define a new sculptural regality. The surface, vast and irregular, develops like a light sheet of material with three deliberately rounded corners. Created from precious Emperador marble with its warm earthy tones, it sits atop three large supports that assume new compositional importance. With a square cross section but also irregular and rounded, they resemble three dolmen or three large tree trunks. These three rough sculptures capture our attention and appear to be rooted in the earth, engendering a sense of solidity that acts as a counterbalance to the natural lightness of the surface. The ingenious steel junction between the legs and the top emphasises the sensation that the surface is floating in space. Jane, with its unconventional design, imposes no positions or hierarchies. Five, eightor ten people can be seated around it. You can sit around one end, still quite spacious, and use the other for books or other objects. Or you can use the entire surface for big meals.Jane can also be used as a work table, organising its large surface in complete freedom. For more informal spaces, but also as a highly elegant table in an executive office. The bottom surface of the marble top has a technical mesh for strength and stability. The legs have a solid beech wood core that is enclosed in four high-density MDF panels, shaped and veneered with moka-or wenge-stained ash.
