This side table, model Albeo III, is made from cast brass with a hand-finished surface. It is part of Albeo, a series of small, unique lounge tables hand-crafted by designer Irene Maria Ganser. The shape of the tabletop represents an abstracted wooden stump. The surface features an impression of cross-grained wood, which has been replicated from an old wooden board. The grain of the board, which is at least 100 years old, was molded and cast in metal. The cast brass went through various surface treatments, such as grinding, filing, and polishing to achieve its final look. Because metal is a naturally porous material, the variations and imperfections of each piece are part of the table's character, making every one unique. The table is suitable for both outdoor and indoor use.
