DISCOMMON continues its signature Automotive Icons Table series, presenting the all-new Aston Martin Valkyrie “Wake” Coffee Table. The eighth bespoke table from the collection, it mimics the design of the unreleased Aston Martin Valkyrie, which was recently revealed at the Geneva Auto Show.
Unlike other tables from the series, the "Wake" Coffee Table is crafted from solid domestic American hardwood blonde-streaked walnut, as opposed to aluminum, then featuring a Rubio Monocoat satin finish and machined aerospace-grade aluminum legs hard-anodized in satin black. The table spans four feet long and is four inches thick.
“Creating an intricate wooden top design presents a set of completely different challenges to machining a block of aluminum,” DISCOMMON creator Neil Ferrier says. “It not only requires prepping the block of wood in an intelligent way to prevent warping and cracking during the machining process, but also tedious hand-sanding and hand-finishing to maintain the details and curvature of the automotive body.”
In total, the Aston Martin Valkyrie “Wake” Coffee Table took more than 100 hours to build. This particular piece was not commissioned by a client like the other Automotive Icons Tables. It was simply a must for Ferrier and DISCOMMON, as they insist that the Aston Martin Valkyrie is the pinnacle of modern vehicle design.
Joining the Ferrari F40, a rare Ford GT, a Ford GT40, a Lamborghini Miura, a Ferrari 250 GTO, a Heuer Monaco commissioned by Tag Heuer, and a Concorde, the Aston Martin Valkyrie “Wake” Coffee Table is available for $17,000 through DISCOMMON.com.
