Description This unique coffee table was constructed from salvaged antique railroad ties of tropical woods. These ties somehow plentiful a century ago are today a rare find. They are set in bronze legs, crafted out of recycled bronze in the lost-wax casting technique. The brass inlay work interplays with the grain pattern found in the wood, creating a strong composition of design and materials. Thierry Jeannot (b. 1963) is a French-born designer living in Mexico for the last 25 years. Working across product design, interior and social design, he focuses on generating high added value to recycled materials. He is interested in traditional techniques and materials and has worked closely with craftspeople both in Paris (in the 80ies with Thierry Mugler) and now in Mexico City.
Passionate about materials, techniques, and handcrafted designs, his creations range from re-purposing antique elements in order to build unique furniture, recycling discarded plastic materials to create impressive chandeliers, to designing lighting and furniture with local artisans using traditional handcrafted techniques. His background in fashion helped him develop a strong sense of detail.
