Set aside the fact that the two esteemed manufacturers originate from opposite sides of the globe, and Cosentino and Savage Design have a lot more in common than one might initially presume. Both long-standing, multi-generational family businesses with an affinity towards materiality and steeped in rich design heritages, the two are fortuitously compatible with one another, as they’ve recently discovered themselves.
The Pam Table represents the expansion of Savage Design’s material repertoire, with the introduction of Dekton by Cosentino in an architecturally structured side table with a hidden talent. As ever, the brand’s meticulous attention to detail and craftsmanship of the metalsmiths is front and centre, showcased by the eloquently thin metal frame.
Joel Savage, designer and director, explains the design process “We had been working on an architecturally inspired side table but hadn’t got the proportions right. It was one day looking at the material rack in our factory that the idea for Pam come together. The rack is essentially pigeon holes that take cut lengths of metal. It’s simple, almost brutalist form, sparked the idea of a cube side table that could be assembled to make a shelving unit.”
James Groom, designer and creative director, elaborates further on the choice of Dekton “Being so thin, it was perfect to become the interlocking feature in the already thin frame. It also opened up the possibility for us to fabricate the material in-house, expanding our factory teams’ capabilities, whilst allowing us tighter control over lead times with no need for outside assistance. This plus Dekton’s properties of being non porous, scratch, stain and UV resistant made it a fantastic material to use for a table surface”.
The minimal profile combined with 4mm thick Dekton top gives Pam an elegant presence. The use of Dekton not only creates a scratch and heat resistant top surface but its cleverly raised and recessed within the frame to allow another Pam to be locked in when stacked. This agility enables Pam to be a table, bookshelf or room divider and can adapt to the reconfiguration of a space.
Pam’s frame comes in Savage Designs’ four signature finishes — brass; stainless steel; aged bronze; and black. Each option can be paired with a Dekton top in either the industrial Kreta or tactile Sirius finish.
