The song 24 Hours to nowhere, from the homonyms album and sang by Hugo Race with soave and deep voice, is the creation origin of the coffee table. Hugo Race tracks are full of sentiments and sensuality, poetry, blues inspiration and rough observations of the world.

The method “element per element” lets obtain an accurate cut and precision when assembling them together. The veneer pieces have not been adjusted with sandpaper after being cut.

Iron legs provide a rock solid base to the tabe, the wood canvas realized in marquetry is suspended in its metal frame. To prepare the marquetry drawing Béatrice has first made some linoleum etchings that have led her to define each piece of marquetry to cut. The pieces have then been sawed one by one with the fretsaw that Béatrice has constructed in France while she studied marquetry at Ecole Boulle.
