With Jane, Jean-Marie Massaud rewrites the rulebook and envisages the table as an organic and free element in space. Unlikely to go unnoticed, the Jane table is held up by three imposing and irregular supports that almost appear to have been sculpted. The solidity of the base contrasts with the airy lightness of the broad surface, which is accentuated by its rounded and irregular corners. The ingenious steel junction between the legs and the top emphasises the sensation that the surface is floating in space. With its unconventional design, the Jane table avoids imposing positions or hierarchies. Five, eight or ten people can be seated around it. Jane can also be used as a work table with its large surface organised in complete freedom. For more informal spaces, but also as a highly elegant table in an executive office. The top of the Jane table is in precious Calacatta gold marble, Emperador marble or in the new Fior di Pesco marble (with glossy or semi-glossy finish). The bottom surface of the top is strengthened with a technical mesh to guarantee its resistance and stability. The supporting structure consists of three columns, each one composed of three elements: a mounting plate for the top, a central wooden column and a base plate. The legs have a solid beechwood core that is enclosed in four high-density MDF panels, shaped and veneered with moka- or wenge-stained ash. The Jane table is also available in the round table version on four columns with marble top composed of four extractable radial sections and a round central plate that can swivel on request (Lazy Susan). The central top is available in Calacatta gold marble, Emperador marble or Fior di Pesco marble (with glossy or semi-glossy finish). The radial sections can be pulled out by up to 10 cm to make them easier to clean. They are available in Calacatta gold or Emperador marble with glossy finish, matching the type of finish chosen for the central disc.

About Designer
Jean-Marie Massaud

Born in Toulouse in 1966, Jean-Marie Massaud graduated in 1990 from Les Ateliers, Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Création Industrielle, Paris. He began to work both in Asia and in France, finally opening his own office in Paris in 1994. Since than, he has dedicated himself to industrial and furniture design, building important relationships with brands such as Authentics, Baccarat and Magis.

His collaboration with Marc Berthier and his work in the field of town planning led him towards design and architecture. He is concerned with design in various contexts, industrial products and furniture. His contextual approach centres on research into the essential, within which the individual remains the centre of attention. It is a work upheld by research into the senses, magic, and vital emotion which brings him to work with very different brands: Cassina, Poltrona Frau, Cappellini, Cacharel, Lancôme, Tronconi and Yamaha offshore. His works have been awarded several prizes and many of his designs are nowadays on show in the design collections of the major museums worldwide: from Amsterdam, Chicago, London, Paris and Zurich: from the permanent collection of the Musée National d'Art Moderne de Paris to the permanent collections of the Museum für Gestaltung, Zürich, of The Chicago Athenaeum- Museum of Architecture and Design, of The Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam and of The Musée des arts Décoratifs, Paris.
