Black dining tables and black coffee tables add, without a doubt, modern luxury to a home. The Basalt table designed by Normal Studio adds warmth and textures too.
Founded in 2006 by Jean-François Dingjian and Eloi Chafaï, Normal Studio is a French industrial Design agency located in Paris (Montreuil).
Both have designed products for Ligne Roset, Tolix, SEB, Tefal and more recently the stylish Mimic mirror for Muuto and many more.

Cut from a single oak trunk to get an even aspect, each piece is handcrafted and burned with a blowtorch (see video below) to get this deep colour becoming close to a mineral aspect.
Once finished, the designs retain their natural tree rings and represent the history, beauty, and destruction of nature….basically life.
You can watch below how the Basalt table is made. It’s fascinating, don’t you think!?
Burn wood was also used on the outside of French Fashion Designer Aurélie Lecuyer’s home, a beautiful family home designed by Atelier Ordinaire.
If you’re looking for a similar finish for your home, Bois Noir in Gironde specialises in supplying Shou Sugi Ban wood, a burnt, eco-friendly and durable wood.
I hope you find this article interesting. Burnt wood is something that I find really beautiful and that we see more and more used in interior design.
