Riva 1920

'The Earth Table' is made from prehistoric Kauri wood set in resin. The table is made by Italian furniture maker Riva 1920. Kauri (Agathis Australis) is a type of conifer that grows only in Sub-tropical New Zealand. They are the worlds biggest tree in terms of trunk volume and grow to a height of 70 meters. Most of them were felled by English Colonists, the remainder are under government and legal protection.
