The Empreinte Side Tables feature a top finished with panels of satiny, fluted ebony laid out in a geometric mosaic pattern. The oak interior of the drawers are finished using the shou-sugi-ban method, an ancient Japanese finishing technique that preserves wood by charring it with fire. In addition to being aesthetically striking and elegant, the finishing technique strengthens the integrity of the oak. Inspired by the texture of the oak, Le Mounier has used the charred surface of the interior as inspiration for the cast bronze legs of the console.
