Lot Essay

The remarkable centre table is probably a unique, custom-made piece designed for a commercial office in the area of Turin, Italy. The base is engineered to sustain a monumental marble top creating a form of tensions and dynamism. Stylistically the table refers to the anthropomorphic organic architecture developed by Piedmont base architects such as Carlo Mollino and Mario Federico Roggero. The designer of the present lot is unidentified, however the highly crafted and structural piece is testament of the ground-breaking Italian design of the 1950s.
