These tables blend Columbian tradition with contemporary design

Guacamayas, a village in the Colombian area of Boyacá, is renowned for its straw handicrafts made by traditional artisans. Originally, straw and fique were materials used for food gathering and ceremonies but today Sergio Vergara has fused together the traditional craft and contemporary furniture.

His ‘Guacamaya tables’ are crafted from the same historic material in a weaving pattern that causes the surface of the tables to spiral inward like a coil. The colorful flat platform rests on a simple black skeletal structure.

Vergara does a great job of merging tradition and a contemporary aesthetic into a functional piece of furniture loaded with history.
