Every piece of furniture created by Ado Chale is unique. While the overall composition shows Chale's highly recognizable style, with its table top resting on three tripod legs in black lacquered steel, the plateau itself is always the center of a particular attention. For this table, the artist created an irregular mosaic of green jasper. The polished pieces of stone are cast in a resin, forming an assemblage of multiple nuances of green that catches the eyes and illuminates the table. Ado Chale has realised his wonderful and original creations by «hunting for nature». His jewels spring from the cliffs or the beaches of Pas-de-Calais where the discovery of marcasite has inspired him to create his first tables. The Arizona desert and the Fontainebleau quarries gave him other nuggets. The materials he has used such as malachite, carnelian and jasper are so fragile and rare that they make each creation unique.
