GamFratesi designed the Epic Dining Table for GUBI as a sculptural piece of furniture inspired by Greek columns and Roman architecture and named after the epic poems of ancient times. Made in Italy from travertine stone, the monolithic form emphasizes the materiality of the stone, the natural beauty of its veins, and the vibrant texture of its unique patina – in which a new detail can be discovered with every use.
Inspired by historical examples of travertine constructions such as the Colosseum and Saint Peter's Basilica in Rome, and the 1970s revival of the material in Southern Europe, the table combines two simple geometric shapes, the circle and the hexagon, with references to the classical Greek column.
Stone options in Neutral White or colorful Burnt Red each create a focal point of differing intensity, bringing personality to private settings and naturalness and tactility to public interior spaces. The varying heights and diameters within the Epic Table Series mean a single monochromatic table can stand alone or be combined in dynamic clusters of varying height and colour.
