GamFratesi designed the Epic Coffee 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. 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, Warm Taupe 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.
An intense process of experimentation has also resulted in the development of three lacquered steel colors: Midnight Black, Earthy Red and Misty Gray. These complement the travertine options of Neutral White, Vibrant Gray or Burnt Red. Each color way gives away a hint of the next, providing a cohesive color scheme across the collection. 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 color. The Epic Coffee Table is available in 60, 80 and 110 cm diameters.
