Retegui’s Bigun coffee table
Published on June 6, 2016
Retegui‘s Bigun coffee table unites two apparently contradictory states: the hard and the soft. A marble top is set on a moulded foam base covered with padded fabric.
The Bigun coffee table embodies research carried out with Retegui into the challenge of imparting warmth and softness to marble.
Bigun draws inspiration from the traditional Basque strongman game of stone lifting.
To create this table they designed a marble top placed on a moulded foam base – just like the stone which, once lifted, is dropped back onto a sort of large, thick cushion.
The perception of decorative marble being a fragile material is totally erased by the cushioning foam base upon which the table top is set.
The generously shaped Bigun exists in two sizes and four monochrome marble/fabric combinations.
