From the forest to the dining room.
The most striking feature of the echt.zeit table is its authentically organic-looking table top. It is made from two lengths of untreated wood that were cut from the tree trunk as a single piece. The brushed surface truly brings the natural features of the wood to the fore. The result is a distinctively individual table that is completely unique. Skilled craftsmanship is fundamental to the echt.zeit table: from choosing the right piece of wood, to the traditional joining methods that are ideal for living wood and allow easy assembly and disassembly when needed. After all, you will want to take such a one-of-a-kind piece with you everywhere. No matter how often you move your home.
A love for the detail.
The "leaf" from the TEAM 7 logo locks the two parts of the table top firmly together, and is yet another example of our perfectionist detailing. The neat steel panel supports made of bronzed steel are modestly set back and their structural design ensures maximum stability. A practical accessory is the wooden trivet. Its shape is reminiscent of a plus sign and it certainly offers a plus in comfort: developed specially for the echt.zeit table, it can be moved along the centre joint - without slipping sideways.
A real piece of craftsmanship.
Only certain tree trunks can be used for the "fillet pieces" needed to create one of these tables. The knowledge and experience of the traditional craftsman therefore play a decisive role in the choice of wood. With great care and precision, the two pieces are combined to make a single sturdy table top, using a tongue and groove joint. For wood, as a breathing material, this handcrafted joint is ideal because it allows for natural expansion and shrinkage. The centre joint is locked together with the TEAM 7 "leaf" made of bronzed steel. This functions as a fastening system on the underside, and in conjunction with the wood joints ensures that the two pieces are firmly secured to form a strong table top. Yet they are also extremely easy to remove when the table needs to be dismantled for transport.
echt.zeit is available in rustic brushed oak with a natural or white oil or natural brushed walnut in natural oil.
