GamFratesi designed the Epic Coffee Table for GUBI as a sculptural piece of furniture inspired by Greek columns and Roman architecture and named after the epic poems of ancient times.
Made in Italy from travertine stone, the monolithic form emphasizes the materiality of the stone, the natural beauty of its veins, and the vibrant texture of its unique patina – in which a new detail can be discovered with every use.
