Colosseum Arena is inspired by magical Rome

Grounded Craftwork is renowned for its furniture and wood accessories. The Colosseum Arena is no exception.

The grooves that run along the edge of the dish represent the seating of the Circus Maximus in ancient Rome. In the midst of the oval dish, humans and beasts play out amazing contests.

The Colosseum Arena imitates the magnificence of Circus Maximus. It draws on design roots stretching back to one of the most significant periods in the history of design and building art.

Christian Riis has designed an oval dish that shows a unique desire to create a memorable experience. This is Danish design with historical references.

Hand selected for the conscious consumer

Hand selected pieces of walnut are gathered, and the grooves are CNC milled. Subsequently, Riis rounds the edges and completes the dish.

The size of the dish places it in its own league. It demands special knowledge and skills to create such an impressive design.

The Colosseum Arena is an ideal gift for the quality conscious consumer. It will enhance any design home and shines in its care for detail.
