"I sketched this idea for the salvaged Malaina tree on a trip from Johannesburg, South Africa to Lilongwe, Malawi. Named after the town of Dowa in Central Malawi, this coffee table is guaranteed to stop your guests in their tracks."
-Jamar Simien, Creative Director of Contour
This natural edge wood coffee table features a mid-century modern style, with our signature logo steel legs. We call this coffee table, The Dowa Table. This majestic table is one of kind, literally. Contour designs cannot be duplicated because each piece features a different cut from an exotic tree, only found on location in East Africa. Each exotic tree is sustainably sourced and goes through a careful drying and cleaning process, before moving on to the next phase of the project. Designed by award-winning artist Jamar Simien, the character of this composition is conveyed with photos, but it's even more impressive in person.
Featuring Contour's signature steel rebar legs found and fabricated in Malawi, the design calls on historical elements of Mid Century Modern, but it fearlessly carves it's own path in the world of premium furniture design. All of the materials are indigenous to East Africa and have all been repurposed. After a collaborative effort with our team in Malawi, we developed a prototype for the design. After carefully refining every aspect of the idea, our dream became a reality.
ART GOES GREEN:
In partnership with Root to Fruit, we are pledging to plant 15 fruit trees in the country of Malawi when this table is sold. The client can choose the tree species, will receive a certificate from the non-profit organization, and will also have a GPS location of where their trees have been planted in Africa.
Materials: Malaina on Signature Custom Steel Rebar Legs
