Twenty-three days to go! With Salone del Mobile just weeks away, we’re previewing the most buzzed-about products. Here are five tables for the home and office, from such manufacturers as Post Design and Cappellini.
1. Candy by Cappellini
Candy uses a strong material – rebar – to create an airy-looking side table that stays put. A glossy coating shows off the textured shape of this readymade steel to best effect. Designed by Sylvain Willenz, the tables come in blue, green, white, red and black and with round or square tops.
2. Topkapi for Marsotto Edizione
Konstantin Grcic’s café table is carved from white Carrera marble, and comes with either a matte or polished finish. Its narrow and wide solid legs balance lightness of form with the natural heaviness of the material.
3. Wire by Post Design
The latest addition to the Post Design line includes the 210-centimetre-long Wire dining table by Alberto Biagetti. A top of marine plywood is perched atop a brass-strut framework that pays homage to the Memphis Group’s iconic postmodern pieces.
4. Hangar for MG Lab
Designed as an office table, Luca Nichetto’s Hangar system would be perfect for any activity that could benefit from a handy space to stow papers or tools. The tubular steel frame can be finished in chrome, white lacquer or anthracite grey; the lower top is in MDF-reinforced aluminium and comes in tobacco, orange, yellow or green, while the worktop, also in aluminium, comes in a white, grey, or oak finish.
5. Tee by Segis
Bartoli Design conceived the Tee modular tables for Segis, with lacquered bases in white, red or grey that can be combined to make desks, coffee tables, and even tailor-made meeting tables. The tops come in a variety of materials, including glass, melamine, scratch-resistant lacquered wood, and wood veneer.
