The leg detail of the Sterling had floated around the Lowe workshop for over eight years before finding its pairing with the stunning top that was originally designed for a dining table for the Melbourne graphic designer Tony DiDonato and his family. The frame is a simple, solid design with a subtle reference to the 1960s. When paired with the soft rounded edges of the top whose timber grain runs across the table rather than lengthwise as is most common in table tops, the 1960s reference is further reinforced. It is easy to see how important balance and proportion is in such a beautiful piece.
The ability of the Lowe team to construct these tables up to 5m in length is a testimony to their absolute skill and mastery of timber construction.
