Angelo Mangiarotti Perdestal Table in Carrara marble 1970s
Angelo Mangiarotti, pedestal dining table, marble, Italy, 1970s
This white marble table is designed by Italian Angelo Mangiarotti. The circular top rests perfectly on the cone. The design showcases a play of balance and rhythm. The design is architectural in the sense that the construction is monumental and solid and based on the laws of gravity. When the cone is placed exactly in the centre of the top, the table is stabile and strong by means of gravity.
Angelo Mangiarotti (1921-2012) was an Italian architect and Industrial designer with a reputation to mainly focus on the needs of the users of furniture. His designs are solid and strong and he always used materials that will stand the test of time. Mangiarotti was very precise in using the right material and the right sizing for his designs. The table is shows minor traces of age and use. The top of the cone has been damaged, which is restored by the experienced restorers in our in-house atelier.
