Mario Botta Dining Table ‘Terzo’ with Granite Top
Mario Botta for Alias, dining table model ‘Terzo’, metal, granite, Italy, 1983
The ‘Terzo’ dining table features a long rectangular granite tabletop that consists of three parts and shows a beautiful sparkle and a play of different color shaded from dark grey to white. It rests on a U-shaped thick tubular base. Two circular metal tubes run alongside each other and connect on the floor. Thin metal arms lift the top up from the base so that it almost seems to flow above the legs.
Mario Botta (1943) was born in the south of Switzerland. After attending the Art College in Milan he then continued his studies at the University Institute of Architecture in Venice where he studied under Carlo Scarpa and Giuseppe Mazzariol until 1969. During his studies he also got to know Le Corbusier and Louis I. Kahn. Botta’s own studio focusses since 1970 onwards on public buildings as well as private projects and furniture design. In 1983 Botta got nominated as a professor at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale in Lausanne and since then enjoys teaching next to his practice as a designer and architect.
