Glass & Brass occasional hand-made table, PT5 model, Black finish
This is one of the first P. Tendercool designs, inspired by Mies van der Rohe’s cross-shaped columns used in the Barcelona pavilion. This handy table is hand-made by welding extruded cross-profiled brass rods in one continuous, 90 degrees angled line: sounds easy, is hard…
For those with keen eyes, it is the exact same table as elsewhere on this site, but flipped to its side, to allow sliding closer to when lounging…
Our Bronze Low Tables are designed to match our Sit-Stirring collection: bespoke hand-made sofa’s and daybeds, created with reclaimed wood from Vintage Thai Houses and the same extruded and hand-welded frames we use in our BLT collection. Send us your preferred Fabric, or Jim Thompson code and we upholster for you.

More about our BLTs
P. Tendercool BLTs are a seriously simple collection of hand-made Bronze Low Tables, stools, benches, cocktail & side-tables, designed by Belgians Pieter Compernol and Stephanie Grusenmeyer.
Occasional tables, sit-sculptures to puzzle with, enjoy in-house or out-doors.
Create your own perfect sized table by combining BLTs with Lego-ease:
modular, compatible-sized tables, two heights to choose from, extruded Brass frames, Bronze tops…
Our textured Bronze tops are hyper-chic, super-sexy and sand-cast to perfection,
reason why we sign every single BLT,
by hand naturally.
Too much Bronze? Opt for Glass Class:
Mondriaan your BLTs with colored Glass tops or order BLTs ‘frame only’
and top them off with any material you love: Marble, Slate, Wood, Leather,…
anything goes as long it is flat.
Start with the space you have and puzzle your own ideal configuration.
Go for transparent tops if you are a carpet collector,
cherish hyper chic bronze
or indulge in purple pink with golden rims.
(if not, just replace the glass, done!)
We know we didn’t invent the ‘Square Table’, but our BLTs are truly unique in their sleek simplicity and
amazing functionality: our cross-profile frames fit any top without having to fix a thing: no screws,
no welding, no nothing.
BLTs are inspired by the iconic cross profile columns in Mies Van der Rohe’s Barcelona pavillion
and are a whopping 100% hand-made by Italian bronze-master Armando and his team.
Armando is hitting eighty and doesn’t even think of retiring, he simply loves his job, and we dearly love him.
Since the 1950’s his uncle and later Armando himself headed a major foundry in Milano.
He used to craft for Sculptors like
Lydia Silvestri and Salvador Dali. Can’t get more Old School then Armando!
He is now sharing his vast experience with us.
We are blessed.
100% hands – no Robots
P.Tendercool’s BLT frames are made with extruded brass rods and are 100% cut, welded, cleaned, brushed,
finished by Hand. Which means BLTs will never be machine-perfect:
some edges might be a bit rounded or very slightly out of angle.
There might occur small gaps when placed together and some welding traces might be visible.
BLTs show our hands…
They can be used outdoors but be aware that Brass and Bronze oxidizes:
although we apply a protective, maintenance-free primer-coating, minor discoloration over time will occur.
Antique dealers call this ‘Patina’. Expect this mainly with our ‘naked BLTs’, which show the natural brass, without coloring.
This ‘Patination’ phenomenon is perfectly normal, intentional and inevitable:
BLTs will age with grace.
BLT GLASS TOPS
We offer a range of tempered glass tops in many colors, or send us your swatch and we match.
We advise not to sit or stand on our BLTs with glass tops and note glass tops are typically are a few mm smaller than the frames to ensure they’d always fit: minor gaps between glass and frames are normal.
PHOTOS We take great care when we photograph our creations or produce our samples, but computer monitors differ,
colours may not be exactly rendered and BLTs are createdby hand, not by robots.
Some minor differences may occur, each is unique.
