Sami Kallio has explored the traditional technology of sand-cast iron.
The solid table top of 30 mm ash, despite its generous thickness, gives a floating elegance with the carefully balanced edge profile. The robust construction of the table makes Stam suitable both for the private home, as well as the restaurant or meeting room.
