Mater Bowl Table
An adaptation of traditional wooden lacquer trays and kneading bowls found extensively across Southern India, the Bowl Table can be used as both table and tray. To use as a tray, simply and easily remove the legs. This keen feature also serves another purpose, by reducing the cost and energy spent on transportation.
The bowl is turned manually on the lathe, showcasing the skill of the `Kharaadi’ or the wood turning community, thereby supporting local skills. The legs are made of mild steel, machined out of rods. The finishing is done with lead free water based PU lacquers.
Mater's Bowl Table encapsulates India's emerging design scene. Designer Ayush Kasliwal took inspiration from local traditional furniture fabrication and applied his training from the National Institute of Design to create this modern table. Made from sustainably harvested natural mango wood, its wooden lacquer tray is a nod to regional craftsmanship, while the steel legs make a contemporary statement.
Kasliwal's devotion to making functional furniture is apparent in the Mater Bowl Table. The tray easily comes off for transporting or using as a bowl. This is a wooden table that can be placed in small spaces, used as a focal piece in a room and set up around sofas for a casual dining experience. Select from Natural, Sirka Gray or Black finishes.
