The project was designed based on a private commission to furnish a penthouse in Milano, in Piazza Carbonari n. 2, inside one of the most exemplary Milanese dwelling architecture by Luigi Caccia Dominioni.
The project includes a supply of seven custom tables to furnish the main hall of the attic, as the hall is going to be used occasionally for catering events. To satisfy the client necessities a flexible design has been developed, in which many layout combinations are allowed.
Hence the project would respond to both functional and aesthetic needs and, above all, could be easily installed and disassembled.
From the perspective of Mise-en-scène, the design tries to have a subtle presence in an already strong context with a wonderful mosaic floor with zoomorphic motifs. For this purpose the table is characterized by its slender profiles, in opposition to the usual heaviness of tables designed for large spaces. Functionally, it allows the ease of transport and rearrangement while giving the impression that the table is floating on the ground.
Carbonari can be assembled and disassembled without tools in a few seconds.
All components are mechanically anchored and each part can be replaced in case of damage.
This experience led to the production of Carbonari table, now available in different finishes , find out more here
