This magnificent and rare table comes from a 150 year old elm tree. Under good conditions the elm can grow 40 metres tall and grow 400 years old. A fungus called the Dutch elm disease has been responsible for decimating the elms in Europe to a devastating minimum. In Switzerland the proportion lies beneath one percent. The few elms left can mainly be found in the central and eastern Alps and the middle of Canton Jura.
The unique table never reveals all its secrets at once – but upon closer inspection one sees distinct year rings, spiral grain and cupping. At the Sempacher Lake in Central Swizerland every square centimeter of the elm table has been elaborately worked. At a stately length of 3,7 metres the table easily seats 10 to 12 persons.
A table for connoisseurs of life and provocatuers.
