behind the simple and clear-cut lines of the ‘arin’ table lies a combination of highly-complex assembly, CNC precision milling and bonding techniques that place lightness at the heart of the design. the milled marble top has been made lighter thanks to the use of a strong honeycomb core with oak trim.
