A marble top has the ability to transform a simple table design into an grand sculpture. In white, the table takes on a clean and pure, yet sexy appeal. This week, we bring you five designs that utilize this lustrous material.
Achille Castiglioni, 1995
A timeless table by the brilliant Achille Castiglioni, the Tavolo ’95 is solid yet ethereal. The top floats lightly, as if suspended over the base. Slender hidden brackets support the top to create this particular visual effect.
Angelo Mangiarotti, 1971
The structural design of the Eros Table involves gravity-based embedding between the top and leg. This is made possible by the truncated conical section of the leg itself, which easily accommodates the tabletop and locks it in a pre-set position. The system is available in various forms and sizes, each with its own special embedding.
Space Copenhagen, 2013
The Fly Table, part of Space Copenhagen’s Fly Series, gives both functionality and good design equal footing. While keeping in tune with classic Nordic styles, the Fly Table can easily gather a modern audience as well with its edgy aesthetic appeal.
Poul Kjaerholm, 1963
This iconic design is defined by the statement wooden rings that make up the table’s optional extension. These pieces are able to be assembled and disassembled like a puzzle. Originally designed in Bianco Carrara marble, the top is now offered in a range of granite and marble options.
Alexander Andersson, 2013
Elegantly tapered with beveled edges, it perches juxtaposed on a heavy steel spiked base. Alexander Andersson combines Scandinavian design with Mexican influence in the making of this piece, where its slim curves and fine edges make it feel extremely delicate on the engineered masculine base. The tabletop is also available in walnut.
