The award winning Le Monde winery nestles between the sea and the hills of Friuli in Western Italy, an area steeped in traditional wine culture. The focus of the wine tasting room project was to create a space devoted to sensory experience and that ensured a constant visual connection with the beautiful surrounding vineyard, via the existing gallery windows. To enhance this connection two large tasting tables extend in line with the rows of vines that stretch as far as the eye can see outside. The Tasting Tables: The pair of tables are solid 9 meter long walnut, divided through the middle to reveal an inner contrasting Corten core. The Corten zig-zags along the horizontal plane of the table, holding both sides together and forming an elevated end platform for use as a table when standing. The Corten also acts as an almost invisible support, creating the surprising illusion of huge 'floating' tables.
