A tin and antimony alloy forms the basis for the metal leaf covering the coffee table. The fine structures in the silvery-white shiny metal bear testimony to the extraordinary workmanship of this piece. A recessed base lends the table an almost floating appearance. The metal surfaces capture the warmth of rays of sun in the room. Therefore the table should, if possible, not stand in direct sunlight or too close to a heater or in a room with underfloor heating. Direct fluctuations in temperature and humidity could otherwise cause expansion bubbles to form on the surface. Such bubbles can just as easily disappear again.
