ENTERTAINING PART II: Dining Tables

September 18, 2019

Tables are the most central element of our dining spaces and thus, take on a central role in our lives. Responsible for facilitating memorable moments with friends and family, important discussions, and a place to enjoy our favorite meals, tables play an integral role in so many milestones. This week, we’re highlighting five unique dining tables that are sure to enhance your space and enrich your dining experience.
INCAS TABLE
Angelo Mangiarotti
One of iconic Italian designer Angelo Mangiarotti’s most noteworthy designs, Incas is a stunning dining table that is sure to make a lasting impression. With its strong presence, Incas has the ability to immediately command the attention of guests whether they’re currently seated at the table or not, establishing itself as a statement piece within the home. Incas’ defining feature is its pyramid-shaped legs, which add a chic, modern touch and give the table a distinct personality. Available in six sizes, as a console, occasional table, coffee table, or dining table. Available in oak or marble.
SK207
Angelo Mangiarotti
Crossing boundaries between disciplines, materials and production techniques has always been a hallmark of Angelo Mangiarotti's work. It would be hard to find a better example for this approach than the SK207, the master's foray into working with metal. While often focused on designing mass-produced elements for architecture, in the SK207 Mangiarotti opts for the ancient technique of lost-wax casting for his first table in bronze. A long and elaborate process, therefore not suitable for large-scale manufacturing and mainly used in the production of sculptures, this particular technique makes each table entirely unique, as the mould itself needs to be destroyed to extract the cast item. The process, the geometry, the weight and its resistance allow the conical bronze base of the SK207 to support large tabletops in marble for an exquisite combination of materials, surfaces and textures.
HB120
Horst Brüning
In 1963, Horst Brüning set up an architecture and design office in Stuttgart, Germany. During this time, he came in contact with architect duo Fabricius & Kastholm, which ultimately led to international recognition and success. It was in this period in the late 60’s that the HB 120 Dining Table was born. Produced today by Lange Production, HB 120 is an enduring classic. The repetition of circles in the design leads to a beautiful harmony, which is only enhanced by the ways in which the base and tabletop compliment one another through contrasting materials, and the result is an undeniably modern table with the potential to transform and define your dining space. Tabletop available in glass or marble, base available in chrome-plated or black-powdercoated steel.
CB-464 GEOMETRIC DINING TABLE
BassamFellows
The juxtaposition of wood and metal are often used to create elegant, forward-thinking designs, and the Geometric Dining Table effortlessly combines this timeless pairing of materials with contemporary, innovative design elements. The table’s base is comprised of a collection of radiating steel tubes which have been fixed and cinched together with wrapped leather, while featuring a classic veneered walnut tabletop. The table works beautifully when positioned alongside other items in the Geometric series—which includes a side chair, a lounge chair, and a daybed—but feels equally distinguished when placed alone. Like most items in BassamFellows' collection, what sets the Geometric series apart is its unwavering commitment to mid-century aesthetics, while still presenting a fresh and contemporary series of designs.

Peter Gaebelein and Birgit Gammerler
Stylish, classic, and eco-friendly, Cena is an incredibly versatile dining table that fits seamlessly into spaces of almost any style.
