As the centrepiece of our Prahu Range of furniture, this rustic table not only has genuine appeal, it also has such a remarkable sustainability story behind it, that you’ll just have to own one! To source the timber used in this piece, Vast locates sunken fishing boats found in fresh water bodies all around Indonesia, raises them up, dismantles and harvests the pieces of wood, drying it all out and then recrafting it into the beautiful table you see here.
Since we started making this piece ten years ago, we have refloated around 400 boats, and we’re sure we don’t have to tell you how much of an impact that has had for recycling! This means that every single piece of this table has a story, and because the wood is teak, it will never rot. It really offers the whole package. Where else can you say to guests, ‘you’re eating a cheese platter off several pieces of timber that all have a marine backstory. Let’s ponder this while we watch the sunset and drink wine’?
