Due to the heavy of the existing marble tables, it has been observed that it is difficult to movement and transport. For this reason, with the aim of comfortable use, the under of the design is equipped with a wheel for easy movement.
It has been observed that furniture and decoration products used in living spaces are dusted very frequently. The size of the open areas of the product is precisely determined so that it can be easily cleaned against the possibility of dust and dirt retention.
Due to the conical form and material of the product, it would be more appropriate to manufacture it on a turning machine in order to be more resistant. However, the designed size was too big for the turning machine in the local workshops.
For this reason, the inner conical part of the prototype table was produced on the turning machine. the outer shell was made by hand work, and the production is completed in two separate stages.
With the experience gained later, the outer conical shell of the product was divided into two parts and made suitable for turning machine production. In this way a smooth surface was obtained and the design had perfect lines.
