INTRO: Each oak barrel tells its own story. It’s handmade and refined in the best wineries to perfection. We continue to tell its story. We breathe new life into age-old oak barrels. In our expert hands, they are carefully prepared and processed into unique barrels, tables and wooden works. We combine Swiss craftsmanship with modern design and sustainable upcycling. Each piece of furniture gets its own personality and becomes a unique piece handcrafted to our customer's wishes.

MAXIMUS: Aesthetically elegance. His symmetrically arranged barrel staves, framed in solid oak, give him an unmistakable existence. With his sweeping stand he fills every dining room with true elegance. Sustainably upcycled with love.
Our dining table Maximus is made from barrel staves of 3 used red wine burgundy barrels from the regional winery Davaz in Graubünden Switzerland. The barrel staves are framed in solid Swiss oak wood. The spaces between are filled with epoxy resin in black and the table legs, modeled on the shape of the barrel stave, are handmade of solid steel. The entire dining table is designed and handcrafted in Switzerland.

Bio
In our opinion, old oak barrels have great potential for furniture design. Their shape and design radiate something venerable that should be preserved. For us, every barrel is full of possibilities and inspiration. It offers room for ever new creations and ideas. Together with high-quality solid wood, the barrel becomes an innovative combination of classic craftsmanship and modern design. The results are works which we always develop in close collaboration with our customers.
