The Oswood Table by Porada: When Marble Meets Wood 

Porada unveils the Oswood table during Paris Design Week, marking the premiere of the Twenty-Four collection set to be officially presented at the Salone del Mobile 2024 from April 16 to 21. 

This continues the successful collaboration between Porada and Patrick Jouin, emphasizing the deep connection of the company with France. 

The Oswood table, designed by Patrick Jouin, extends the Twenty-Three collection and is an offshoot of the Osmose collection. Building on the success of the Osmose table, where marble legs were introduced to Porada’s collection for the first time, the brand and Jouin developed the new Oswood table.

Conceptually and technicallyOswood shares the genesis of the Osmose table, celebrating the encounter of two materials, marble and wood, but reversing their roles: in Oswood, the top is made of marble, while wood is used for the legs.

“In this role reversal, there is the representation of the forest and its trees, identified by the legs crafted from wood. The materials reveal themselves in their purest expression to the observer and are best perceived by touching the product,” says Patrick Jouin, a long-standing member of the Porada network and the designer of various products such as the Ella chair, Louis armchair, Leaf tables, and the Mary bar cabinet, to name a few.

In the case of Oswood, the distinctive ornamentation is represented by wood details shaped like drops placed on the marble top, allowing the appreciation of the distinctive grain of canaletta walnut.
