ALTAR Furniture is the bespoke luxury furniture workshop, based in Budapest, founded in 2013 by advertising and music biz veteran András Lacfi. Lacfi and his partner Ernő Balogh started by upcycling old pinball machines into coffee tables, most of which are interactive and lavishly decorated. “If you’re going to buy a bespoke table from us, we want you to utterly adore the finished creation. We need to know what makes you tick – so we create a table that you’ll be extremely happy with. We’ll spend months sourcing the right parts if we have to, to make the finished piece utterly amazing.”
Some pieces are decorated with pages from classic books, others have built-in projectors, meteorites or vintage backstage passes. “For one table, we had to source Dilithium crystals… even though they don’t exist, except in the minds of Star Trek fans,” adds Lacfi. “And, you know what, we managed. We like to think that anything is possible when we are building our ALTAR masterpieces!”
Every table has a story, every table has a history and every table is one of a kind. Each piece is meticulously planned to ensure that every ALTAR creation is a “sexy being”.
