Dries Truyers Design


"Zwart Goud"

The sculptural collection, named ""Zwart Goud,"" features a stone sourced from the coal mine of Houthalen, the birthplace of designer Dries Truyers.

The mine stone symbolizes the history of the coal mining industry and its consequences, representing a significant turning point in Belgian history. The tabletop takes on a conical shape and is crafted from remnants of dark-stained solid oak wood sourced from the construction industry.

The stone and tabletop are mechanically connected without the use of glue, allowing for easy disassembly of the furniture piece."
