Charles Zana has always had a deep passion for the Mediterranean Sea. Its outstanding beauty is an endless source of inspiration for the French designer who can turn a simple idea into a magnificent design.
The Calanque coffee table in bronze is a tribute to the Mediterranean creeks – calanques in French – found all around the city of Marseille. The juxtaposition of the three irregular elements on the top is a poetic interpretation of the large stones worn out and polished by the waves over the centuries.
Sculptural and at the same time decorative, the bronze surface captures the light and radiates it, like the sun’s reflections on water. The elegant, irregular shape lends the piece a dreamy quality of timelessness. If one looks at it long enough, one might even hear the soft, regular sound of the waves…
The Calanque coffee table is handmade by the best French metalworkers, and is available through The Invisible Collection.
