Angelo Mangiarotti, 1953


The Compensato Tables are made out of thin layers of plywood, whose curving forms make them more rigid, giving strength and stability to a very simple structure, which is made lighter and more streamlined by the tapering leg design.  A construction system was initially planned to be dismantled, so as to also create stools, benches and bed-settes, a striking project which won praise from the great Alvar Aalto in the mid-1950's.  It is a design which still looks brilliant in its quest for a non-obvious kind of simplicity, due to the quality of its simultaneously simple and elegant features and for its compositional precision, structural clarity and clever balance of proportions.
