The Impossible. Made Possible.
Introducing The Wave Collection
GRAVITY. A defiant force of nature, driving objects of mass together. This natural phenomenon serves as the inspiration behind Tollgard’s first collection of functional sculptures for The Refined Workshop. Exploring the gravitational attraction of objects around us, designers Staffan Tollgård and Filippo Castellani were moved to reinterpret convention and push the limits of material traditions.

A juxtaposition of soft curves and inherent strength, The Wave Collection highlights the importance of every surface within a design. These masterpieces bring intrigue to an otherwise overlooked surface – the underside of the tabletop – and are as much about what is absent as what is present. Seamlessly slotting together, the top gently rests on a graduated elliptical base. This collection achieves extraordinary complexity with apparent simplicity.
Beneath the surface of the design lies another story of history and power expressed in the stone itself. Grand Antique, a monochromatic beauty, rich in contrast and character, roots the provenance of these pieces back to the ancient Romans. Formed over millions of years in the valley of the River Lez, in the Ariege region of France, this is the most precious marble in the Pyrenees. From the Roman to the Byzantine Empires, this quarry and its coveted stone have adorned palaces through the centuries.
The Wave Console
The Wave console table expresses an elegant form, impeccably carved into being with one of the most prized natural stones in the world. A masterly combination of great design, authentic craftsmanship and innovative engineering.
The Wave Bench
The Wave bench sits at the nexus of functional sculpture, inviting physical engagement with a piece of art engineered from one of the most striking and fascinating natural stones in the world.
