Becker: Sandblasted Poker (Four Clubs)
Product Number: 002-007-0714
We've seen a handful of Poker designs from Federico, though most have been rendered in strawberry wood, and none have had quite the dynamism of this piece. Tall and broad, with a very slight taper up to its rim, the bowl is quite substantial. It's been paired to a sleek, almost pencil-thin shank and stem arrangement, which has been angled slightly downward, though some precision engineering ensures that the entire piece sits without button touching the table. While the shape alone makes this a sturdy desk pipe, the finish is what draws my attention — a crisp sandblast has revealed concentric, tightly-packed growth rings, and it's been dressed in a dark stain that highlights all of the detail of the piece.- Rachel DuBose
