Based in Guadalajara, Peca studio aims at showcasing the skill of local artisans who shape stones into practical objects.

Mexico’s terrain is majorly formed due to volcanic activities. These same natural movements have created the natural, local material that is used in the making of the Petra table. Moretti specifically picked volcanic stone on account of its symbolism and the appreciation she has developed over the years of working with it.

Comprising three chunky columns that support a pill-shaped tabletop, each point of intersection of the Petra table is marked by a polished stone disc on the top.

An amalgamation of the mysteries of nature and its role in our everyday lives, the Petra table is hand-carved from volcanic stone. Based in Guadalajara, Peca studio aims at showcasing the skill of local artisans who shape stones into practical objects. Comprising three chunky columns that support a pill-shaped tabletop, each point of intersection of the Petra table is marked by a polished stone disc on the top. Carved entirely by hand, a series of straight lines run across the width and the length of the tabletop that leads the eye to the three polished stouts. The shiny discs symbolize the molten rock that had thrust up from the Earth’s core to form the Mexican terrain.

Graceful lines blend in contrast to the massive stone proportions of the Petra dining table. This harmony is intact with the table’s bold, natural textures and delicate forms. The table takes about 10-11 weeks to produce and is suitable for both indoor and outdoor dining. Encompassing the force of nature and the warmth and raw beauty of Mexico, the Petra dining table honours the noble material.
