"eterna primavera". Constructed from two different manufacturing styles from opposite sides of the world, the table was conceived whilst in Medellin, Colombia. Incorporating traditional techniques but designed replacing classic patterns with popular tattoo art, the table’s base was hand carved in Colombia. Specific tattoo images of hearts, flowers and swallows have been chosen to symbolise Medellin, the city of "eternal spring". The tabletop was then produced in Australia using laser cut stainless steel, adapting tattoo motifs to blend with the base.

Eterna primavera dismisses the usual flat table top to give you a serving table with a difference. The swooping curves invite you to interact with the tabletop forcing you to think about placement of objects such as drinks.  The legs combine popular tattoo designs to give a modern feel to the baroque style carvings, creating a sense of old world beauty in modern popular forms.
