In the 1980s, Brazil’s Serra Pelada gold mine was a bustling locale that attracted thousands of miners; today, it is an abandoned open pit located south of the Amazon River. Brazilian designer Roque Frizzo drew inspiration from the mine for his dramatic Serra Pelada dining table ($16,998)—which speaks to authentic Brazilian culture, a common theme throughout Frizzo’s work. A wonderful conversation piece, the contemporary design features a simple silhouette and metal feet that fall aside to a graphic, wooden gorge that extends from the table down to the floor. From above, a glass top allows diners to peer into the depths of the stratified cavern.

Created in conjunction with Saccaro USA, the table will launch at Art Basel in Miami on December 2. The unveiling will take place at Saccaro USA’s Midtown showroom and will be hosted by Brazilian interior designer Jóia Bergamo. (saccaro-usa.com
