Indoor Table #10 by Manoteca

Jul 22, 2015

Category: Living

In Bologna, Italy sits a unique workshop that uses old abandoned items and recycled materials to re-purpose into new products and furniture. This Italian shop is called Manoteca, and one of the prime examples of their practice is the Indoor Table, which is made from vintage exterior doors cut from Chestnut wood from the 1800s.

When opened, this indoor table serves as a study desk with iron pockets that have been painted with non-toxic water-based paints, a stationary drawer, a sliding drawer and a movable iron tray. When it’s closed, it also can be used as a dining table for 6 to 8 people. Interestingly enough, nothing on the original door has been modified or removed. The Indoor Table by Manoteca is handmade and treated with vegetable Ecos paint and natural beeswax. [Purchase]
