Odyssey is a stylish table suitable for living or dining rooms. The glass top features an automatic opening system which allows it to be extended in a single fluid motion while maintaining the oval shape: watch the video to see how simple it is to increase the number of seats in seconds! The wooden pedestal base, with metal inserts, guarantees optimum comfort for all guests. Veneers Veneers are made from hardwood sheets of varying thicknesses from the highest quality trunks. These sheets are glued onto various types of substrate and finished in the required colours. Veneers are used to create high quality products with stunning looks. Lacquer finishes Lacquered materials are varnished woods or various substrates finished with a matt (20 or 25 Gloss) or glossy (90 Gloss) coating. Gloss is a unit of measure of material gloss ranging from 0 to 100%. Metal Calligaris uses metal with two types of finish: chrome-plating or coating. The chrome-plating process deposits a layer of chromium on the metal giving it a shiny mirror finish and high resistance. The coating process involves applying a coat of coloured pigments made from metal powders to the substrate followed by a clear protective coat for gloss and abrasion resistance. Frosted tempered glass Tempering is a heat treatment that creates balanced internal stresses designed to improve the resistance of glass sheets to flexing and thermal shock. It is also called “safety toughened glass” because when broken it shatters into small pieces without sharp edges. Silk-screening involves colouring glass by depositing enamels or paints on the underside of the glass sheet. Glass can also be coloured by introducing a dye into the molten glass which is then uniformly distributed throughout the sheet.
