the spot tables are enamel coated tables that consist of a heavy weighted base with two different height stems with either a square or a round top. coated in heavy duty vitreous enamel, an ultra hygienic and industrial process in which particles of glass are sprayed on to cast iron, and then fired at furiously high temperatures.

the block table has electroplated copper legs and granite top, flat sided, allowing tables to be placed together in multiple configurations. the stone surface is heat resistant and treated to minimize grease marks. there are adjustable feet to protect the floor surface and allow for uneven floors.
