With its bold embellishments, gloria dining table, a 1925 in-house construction by horgenglarus, resonates with a charming turn-of-the-century air. Its grey cast iron legs and low center of gravity make it perfectly suited for pubs (or a "Beiz," as they are called in Switzerland) of any kind. A small T is used to screw them to the table so they need no braces. No table leg is in the way, making it easy to access and leave the table.
Giesserei Chur sand-casts the legs, a process suited to complicated geometries and a variety of material cross-sections, reflecting even minor details. All the legs are treated with anthracite-colored textured paint and stamped with "horgenglarus" lettering. Horgenglarus cast legs are precious items on the vintage market.
The 30mm table tops are made to measure from the chosen solid wood (also in square format). To ensure the tops remain level even when the wood shrinks or expands, every solid wood top has a dovetail batten inserted in a groove, an age-old principle from the 17th century.
