Product Description

The Nandi Dining Table is available in two variants, the standard eight seater version and the smaller six seater version.

Every production cycle at the Phantom Hands workshop leaves us with piles of small, uneven, seemingly unusable pieces of wood. In an effort to reduce waste and utilise this precious wood, we encourage our design collaborators to incorporate this leftover wood into their product design. The Nandi dining table is a result of such an attempt to render woodshop debris functional.

This is a classic dining table with a large top composed of an arrangement of wooden pieces of different sizes. Collected from our workshop, each piece of wood is individually shaped and hand polished. Pieced together, they lend the top a geometric texture or graphic inlay pattern that is unique to each table.

Divided into three detachable parts, the top fits into a frame with slots. The cylindrical legs of the table are also screwed onto the frame. There is a deliberate narrow gap between the geometric table top and the frame all around, to allow for the natural seasonal expansion and contraction of wood. The table, which comes flat packed, is easy to dismantle, transport, and set up.

The Nandi Dining Table comes with its own set of simply constructed lightweight stackable chairs with cane seating.

All products of the Nandi collection come with special feet pads that have been customised as per the shape and size of each leg. They felt pads are inserted into a groove at the bottom of the leg to improve their durability and to make them less visible.

Product Options

We offer this product in a choice of two wood finishes: Natural Teak and Dark Stain.

For the Natural Teak finish, the wood is sanded and finished with hard wax oil to bring out the natural, golden-brown colour of the teak.

For the Dark Stain finish, a coat of water-based, teak stain is applied to give the wood a darker teak shade, followed by a coat of a sealer.
