The Chimenti low table is made of three planks obtained from the Venetian Bricola poles preserving their natural live edges corroded by decades of salt water and sculpted by the lagoon molluscs. In Venetian seafaring language, the Chimenti are the gaps between the boards forming a ship’s planking, where the master caulkers stuff the gaps with oakum soaked in tar and colofonia, a transparent vegetable resin. Not unlike this ancient work, the manufacture of this table use an innovative resination process capable of filling only the empty spaces with a transparent resin capturing the underwater air bubbles that bring the wood back to the original look and conditions.
