Relying on some of the oldest artistic ancestral techniques, the Pentagon's surface is shaped by our skilled artisans. Natural mineral powders and colour pigments blend to form the unique finish. The receeded lower shelf set against the thickness of the top makes for a revealing graphic contrast against the openness of the base. Clean lines and a standardised height showcase the simple beauty of the metal work.
*Please note that wood pieces are unique and may come with natural variations.
All in all, the natural characteristics are called “Medullary Rays” as they are the unique cellular structures found in solid wood (especially in White Oak.) These desired characteristics are drawn out by the type of cut which is known as “Quarter-Sawn.” This type of cut is revered for its beauty, strength, and prevention of warping.
However, other factors including light and shade variations will also enhance the beauty. Despite that, quarter-sawn oak is “a more structurally sound hardwood than flat-sawn oak. It resists cupping, twisting, warping, moisture penetration, and raised grain. One of the most sought-after features of quarter-sawn white and red oak is the flecks and the rays that appear on the face of the boards as a result cutting along the growth rings.”
