Agave ATRA's modern dining table combines Scandinavian design with Mexican influence. The sculptural steel base was inspired by the agave plant and the unique boat-shaped, beveled-edge top is solid walnut in a dark walnut satin finish. Meticulously crafted marble, it perches juxtaposed on a heavy steel spiked base inspired by Mexico's indigenous Agave plant. The aesthetic of this piece comfortably straddles the line between art and functionality, a philosophy that has drawn inspiration from Alexander Diaz Andersson's own dichotomous identity, with a blend of clean Scandinavian lines and whimsical elements from traditional Mexican art. Time is a prominent theme, as he seeks to anticipate how his designs will change into the future—the patinas each material will acquire throughout its life and how this will affect the character of the surrounding space. This foresight not only guarantees that this piece will age gracefully, and in harmony with its environment, but also that its functional lifespan will be longer, putting sustainability at the heart of the philosophy.
