What an enchanting new Patagonian quartzite table! During PAD London 2019, this fine craftsmanship piece was launched at Paris-based Galerie BSL’s stand, courtesy of Chinese-French duo Studio MVW. With a modern design, the warm stone in the “Jinye” series derives from a vulcanoid region in Brazil and is technically composed of the brass layers to produce the structure of the table.
