Solid wood combined with veneer
Wood is a beautifully lively natural product. Differences in color, drawing and structure give wood character. These solid wood bars of 4 x 4 cm are combined with a beautiful veneer of wengé wood. This causes the rytmic effect. The table is finished with a very high quality 2-component lacquer.

Solid wood ‘warps’. This means humidity and temperature can causes changes to take place in the size and shape of the material. ‘Warping’ can be reduced by making sure that the room temperature remains between 15°C and 24°C and humidity remains between 45% and 60%. So do not place your table too close to a heat source (stove, fireplace, radiator, etc.).
Light and air can cause discolouration in wood. Excessive discolouration can mainly be attributed to strong sunlight. It is thus best to place your table so that it is not exposed to too much sunlight.
Our tables are finished with a high-quality matt lacquer which is very strong. However, there are certain things you can do yourself to keep your table beautiful.
When your table has just been varnished, it will take 2 weeks until it is fully cured. So in the 1st period you have to be a little careful. Therefore avoid heavy loads, heat and excess moisture.
Important tips for wooden products with a matt lacquered finish:
• For daily maintenance, the table can simply be wiped with a soft, dry cloth
• Make sure that spilled liquids are cleaned immediately using a soft, clean and slightly moist cloth
• Do not use caustic products
• Use a coaster to prevent water rings. It is also recommended to use coasters for hot objects, best to always use a placemat or tablecloth to avoid scratches and stains.
• Prevent scratching of abrasive surfaces by using felt pads
• It is better not to use abrasives, rough sponges or cleaning equipment, as this will scratch the table top.
Although lacquer is more resistant to moisture than oil, you can expect stains and circles if water or liquid remains on for a long time. Especially moisture that cannot evaporate because it is covered or locked up, will eventually affect the lacquer. So be careful with wet cloths, cups, vases or dishes.
About the design
of the Rhythm.
Julius Taminiau prefers to seek inspiration from his intense passion for music. When designing the Rhythm, he tried to find congruence between music, nature and architecture. All these elements can be associated with rhythms, compositions and proportions. Three important core values in the design of this table.
The musical component can be recognised in the tabletop. The narrow grooves feature a unique veneer finish and form almost rhythmical hues on the surface. The pattern is also an abstract reference to the growth rings encountered in trees.
Because there is an overall sense of simplicity, all attention is rightly attracted to the special tabletop. A timeless composition where architecture, music and nature mingle with each other.
