Project Designer: Rottet Studios
Dubbed the “amoeba table”, this piece was designed to fit in a conference room with an equally unusual shape and seat up to 30 people, many of whom make and break blockbuster movie deals for a living. The top approximately 32 feet long and 10 feet at it’s widest end. Made from Bardiglio marble, quarried in Italy, and found in a Beverly Hills store yard, the edge is smoothed and softly rounded. Balanced atop three, stainless steel cylinder bases, the amoeba table is equipped with a lot of high tech accoutrement, cleverly hidden in retractable ports.
One of the biggest challenges of this project was the sheer size and weight of the marble top. Conventional methods of transport were impossible;the amoeba table required a crane lift into the conference room and an army if fabricators who could handle the stone and install the complex multimedia systems.
