As we move into what will surely be a new way of life, the team at Mac & Wood have spend the last year diving deeper into the pivotal role dining tables now play in daily life. The new norm will see many of us needing a permeant space to work and play, and it must be flexible in purpose.
The average family dining table will play host to 572 conversations, 1,456 meals and 468 jokes – every year. Research commissioned by McCain, found more than a quarter described the dining table as the heart of their home.
For this very reason Mac & Wood has been committed to crafting beautiful bespoke tables, working closely with the customer to articulate exactly what is required for such a encompassing piece of furniture. For example the Dekton tables are pretty indestructible and amazingly versatile coming in an array of beautiful finishes and colours, which makes Dekton suitable for any space or room.
Dekton is made in a process that combines technologies from three different industries; glass, porcelain and quartz. This process lead to the development of a new production method called Particle Sintering Technology.
This process is like an accelerated version of the natural metamorphism that rocks and stone undergo when subjected to heat and pressure over thousands of years. To manufacture Dekton, Cosentino has reduced this process to four hours with extreme heat and pressure resulting in an entirely new ultra compact material. The press used in the ultra-compaction can bring 25,000 tons of pressure to bear.
As our work and social lives continue to migrate it is not only the functionality of our dining tables that will be redefined, the look and feelings they evolve will also become a large factor in our purchasing decisions. They will not only be a place for evening work but also need to be a place to socialise and relax. Duelling between office and sanctuary, with research showing nearly 44% of families are eating more meals together than ever before.
