A feat of structural engineering, the Articulated Round Dining table is comprised of a robust but intricate base supporting a thick and heavy French Oak table top. The natural rough character of the French Oak is contrasted by the finely crafted legs, emphasising the complex angles and joins. This was designed with the help of James’s brother, Edward “Teddy” Mudge, who is an accomplished bio-medical engineer. The base is slightly offset and positioned asymmetrically on the table top, to give the feeling that it is floating. This subtle detail generates a fluidity and energy that is common in James Mudge pieces. Kindly note that this design is suitable for indoor use only and should not be placed outside.
This design is for indoor use only.
Due to the complexity of the Articulated Table, we currently only manufacture it in two sizes, as listed below.
6 seater: 63" Ø x 30" high
8 seater: 73" Ø x 30" high
In order to retain the natural finish of the timber we keep the number of protective coats to a minimum. Although this does add to the aesthetic appeal of the product, highlighting the natural qualities of solid wood, it does mean that the finish is not impervious to damage and staining. However, if you follow the instructions laid out below, it should be sufficient for normal use.
After use, wipe down the wood surfaces with a slightly damp cloth to preserve and protect the wood coating. Dry with another cloth if a lot of water remains. Do not expose these products for any extent of time to pools of water. If the products get wet you should dry them off as soon as possible.
If exposed to wine, vinegar and oils / oily food for an extended period of time the wood will stain. To avoid stains, wipe up spills directly with a slightly damp cloth and then dry. Spills should not be left overnight as they will sink in and mark.
Placing hot items on the wood may result in damage or burning. We recommend that you use coasters, and protect the table tops from hot dishes.
We do not recommend that you place indoor furniture outdoors. Outdoor furniture is specially designed to be able to withstand the dramatic temperature changes and moisture in the air. Avoid placing timber furniture items in full sun as exposure to sun/uV causes yellowing and light surface cracks.
Heavily air-conditioned environments require the use of a humidifier to restore the natural humidity of the air, as dry air will result in cracking / warping of the timber.
The Articulated Table is available in the following timbers:
