Ruban – Coffee Table

The base of this solid wooden coffee table cuts like a ribbon through the oak top. The tabletop’s rounded bottom carries over to its drawers, creating the appearance of a single, unbroken volume. The drawers of the coffee table come painted in a vibrant signature red, but can be custom sprayed in any other desired color.

A special edition of the Ruban made of oak is colored by the Shou-sugi-ban technique, an ancient Japanese technique in which wood is burned and brushed to form a natural protection. This traditional torching method generates a much richer color than a standard stain and deepens the grain of the oak (see photo 2). After burning, the coffee table is lacquered to prevent the release of charcoal.

Watch how we burn the surface of the coffee table to get the desired charcoal effect. This method is also called the Shou-sugi-ban technique, a traditional technique in which the siding of Japanese houses was burned to provide a natural protection.

After burning and brushing the oak to give the grain a nice deep texture, the coffee table is lacquered to prevent staining.



The Ruban is available in the following dimensions:

130 x 65 cm
100 x 100 cm

The height of the table is 42 cm. Other dimensions, colors or materials are available. Inquire for options.


The coffee table is made of solid oak with a steel or brass base. A tabletop in another type of wood or a colored MDF lacquer is available upon request.

The wooden tabletop is finished with a protective transparant lacquer. The steel base is powder coated, while the brass base is brushed to give it its matte look.



Standard color is natural oak. The charcoal table top (shou-sugi-ban) is available for a surcharge.

We are constantly expanding our range of materials, so please do not hesitate to contact us for other woods (such as american walnut) or colored MDF options.


The wood is finished with a transparent, matte lacquer.

The colored MDF version can be finished with a high gloss or satin lacquer.
