|The table top will have a leather insert in its centre. The outer frame will be polished chromed steel. This can be quickly wiped cleaned .|
|Rollers will be used to create the shape of the legs.
The same manufacturing techniques will be utilised, as seen in the manufacture of the Barcelona Chair.
The ‘curved’ pieces of steel, that form the sides of the table legs, will be welded, using a jig to hold them in position.
The cross pieces and the two side frames are welded, forming the sturdy frame.
The welds will be hand finished by hand filing and buffing.
The table will be chromed plated in a chrome bath, following the original manufacturing technique. This will ensure a quality finish, suitable for steel furniture.
The table is aesthetically pleasing and will fit in with the style of the original Barcelona Chair.
