EIGHT is a minimalist table inspired by geometry of the Southern cross. Stars in the night sky reveals the cross which is usually too dim to be easily seen from Earth with the naked eye. The original star has five points, with the uppermost point directed toward the North star Polaris. With all this said, 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.

*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 surfaces be waxed with a Clear Furniture Wax every 6 months. In high usage areas the wax can be applied more often to ensure the protection and longevity of the sealer.
- Apply wax to the surface and sides, leave it for 1 hour, buff using a microfibre cloth/ microfibre polishing pad or any automotive polishing pad until all the excess wax has been removed and the surface is shiny.
