“A smart beauty, resulting from a thought and a know-how capable of transmitting a deep emotion through a wise accentuation of the peculiarities of the materials used”. Piergiorgio Cazzaniga

New look for Tense table offered in four different and surprising finishes.
Wood, brass, stone and Ebano black marble dress up one of MDF Italia’s bestsellers within its collection, thus creating a new range typology: Tense material.
Four noble and ancient materials, that have always been used by man to create furniture, here are processed with a soft brushing that highlights their material qualities. They dress up Tense, arousing new tactile and visual features and stimulating senses. Brass, a perfect and rigorous surface, made soft by surface brushing that evokes ancient golds. Stone, reconstructed by using river stones to get a natural surface made soft by an accurate brushing. Quite a wrinkled and lived wood, a real visual and tactile experience.

Tense debut at Salone 2017.
The table created in solid natural oak wood, subjected to surface acid etching treatment applied by using natural acids without chemical additives,  
This process, originating from alchemists of the past, enables to alter wood organic properties: through the reactions of tannins contained in wood, a natural “burning” effect is got, that gives the wood surface a charred appearance, making it unique. Wood in touch with natural acid assumes warm and deep black shades, full of natural, not uniform gradations, that make each table a unique piece.
