EIGHT is a handmade minimalist dining room table inspired by geometry of the Southern cross. This table table will fit into any modern or contemporary space. We value functionality and comfort which is increased by maximum amount of leg space.
Lightweight high-performance concrete
Polished vs Natural // The difference between the 2 finishes is mainly aesthetics. Our polished finish goes through a 5-step diamond polishing process to create a almost mirror-like finish which enhances the mottling whereas the natural finish retains the look of natural concrete. Both finishes are manufactured with the same raw material and has the same sealer.
Concrete complexion in 4 shades of grey.
Concrete Grey /Smoke /Gunmetal /Graphite
*Please note this is an indication only, complexion might vary slightly due to various factors like humudity, temperature and curing times. It is a natural handmade product.

Seating placement information // This guide is based on comfortable space and slightly larger than average chairs, the spacing mostly depends on the chair size. If you have smaller size chairs you should be able to fit an extra 2 seats on each table size with your space slightly more compact.
Lightweight concrete // Our concrete weighs approximately half of conventional concrete with innovative and intelligent material composition. We do not use any steel or large aggregates in our product. We do not believe in ultra-lightweight as this will compromise durability and authenticity.
Weight of each table by size:
2100x1100 = 108kg
2400x1100 = 124kg
2700x1200 = 149kg
3000x1200 = 164kg
3200x1200 = 176kg
3600x1200 = 193kg
Ultra high-performance concrete (UHPC) // FLOAT concrete has compressive strength of between 85-95 mpa. Even more important our UHPC has extremely high flexural strength which gives our product the ability to withstand bending forces and gravity over time. Our reinforcing is a combination of anti-crack, glassfibre and xerox fibres giving our tables optimum performance. The surface is scratch resistant and our CrystalX waterproofing technology makes it stain resistant.
Cleaning and General Protection // We recommend that you use any mild detergent mixed with warm water and a microfibre cloth to clean the table, rinse the surface with water to ensure that it is free of any chemical residue before use.
- Use coasters to further protect the surface from heat and water.
- Do not leave spills unattended.
General Maintenance // We recommend that the concrete surface must be treated with a high quality self-shine polymer polish for regular maintenance to provide a protective high-shine surface finish. Expected wear 6-12 months - In high usage areas the polish can be applied more often to ensure the protection and longevity of the sealer.
Product // Stoneshield Protect & Shine - Available at large hardware stores or directly from Stoneshield.
Application // Ensure that the concrete surface is cleaned and dry. Using a clean microfibre cloth, apply a thin and even coat in one direction using a circular motion. Do not allow pooling or bubbles to form. Make sure the polish is applied continuous without creating dry joints. Stoneshield Protect & Shine can be buffed after 24 hours using a polishing pad to increase the shine and durability.
Curing // Allow concrete surface to dry for 12 hours - try to avoid contact in this time period.
- Precaution // Ensure good ventilation, avoid skin and eye contact and wear protective gloves.
