New look for Tense table offered in three different and surprising finishes. Wood, brass, stone 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.

Carbone is the ultimate variant in the Tense Material collection. Created in solid natural oak wood, thickness 3mm, subjected to surface acid etching treatment applied by using natural acids without chemical additives.

This innovative process inspired by alchemists of the past allows to alter the organic properties of wood. The reaction of tannins contained in wood generates natural ‘burning’ that endows the surface with a unique carbonised effect.

Contact with the natural acid enhances sensitive wood with the shade and colors of warm intense black, rich in natural gradations that are not uniform but unique.

The natural surface features a special extensive matt finish that is rough and worn, a genuine visual and tactile experience for the user.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.
