About the author
Gergely Bajzáth was born in Hungary in the very late 70s. A petrolhead since his youth, Gergely studied steel construction after leaving school, and – never one to work in an office – went on to work in the construction industry in Germany, before arriving in the UK in 2005.
Highly experienced in metal fabrications, he started to make engine coffee tables in 2011, and has now made in excess of 50 different types, as well as other types of car furniture. After a few nice articles about his tables were published, the Saatchi Gallery bought and placed one of his V12 tables in its Saatchi Store in London.
Gergely is very happy to help you bulid your own table!
