Bar­bera De­sign ‘Uc­cio’ side ta­ble

Inside Out (Australia) - - Things We Love -

DE­SIGNER: Daniel Bar­bera Daniel Bar­bera had a drive to cre­ate things from a young age. “I grew up mak­ing what I needed,” he says. “Some­how, I’d find old junk and mod­ify it – it was a real foun­da­tion for my brain, along with lots of Lego!” Daniel es­tab­lished his la­bel in 2004 with a fo­cus on durable and time­less ma­te­ri­als, such as mar­ble, steel, leather and tim­ber. The ‘Uc­cio’ ta­ble’s slat­ted-steel sur­face pairs with the slat­ted seat and back­rest of the match­ing low chair – ideal for out­door use – but it’s also avail­able with a mar­ble or tim­ber top for in­door use, too. The slim­line frame is cre­ated us­ing a CNC wire-bend­ing ma­chine and the top is laser cut – the pieces are then welded to­gether in Daniel’s Melbourne fac­tory. Daniel’s Uc­cio range is named for his fa­ther’s child­hood nick­name. “He passed away just prior to my de­sign­ing the range,” he says. “I named it af­ter him, for all the knowl­edge he in­stilled in me.” $394, bar­ber­ade­sign.com.
