Four thousand individual strips of veneer, carefully overlapped, systematically sanded through in waves and then polished to create a solid structure that realistically represents the appearance of a natural nautilus shell. The exterior is carved to replicate the effect produced as the natural growth rings are eroded by the sea, the internal chambers are formed with delicate Japanese lace paper.

Nautilus, a limited edition of 2 coffee tables, is the latest piece to be produced by Marc Fish at Robinson House Studio and was awarded Guild Mark number 435 by the Worshipful Company of Furnituremakers on Thursday 19th of May.

To the best of our knowledge this innovative construction technique has never been tried before but has been executed with consummate precision and skill. Our congratulations to Marc and his clients for giving the world yet another achingly beautiful piece of furniture.
