Osvaldo Borsani Table with Black Leather Inlay
Osvaldo Borsani for Tecno, desk/writing table, aluminum, lacquered wood and leather, Italy, 1970s.
Desk table with a black top. The base consists of a two metal frames. The base creates an open character with the dark top. It was at the time that founder and key designer Osvaldo Borsani was put in charge of the company and the day to day running was left in the hands of the architect Marco Fantoni and other designers. This creation of the 'Centro Progetti Tecno' was a decision made to present future designs of the company as a group creation, not as the result of the creative mind of one single designer.
This table is in good condition, with some marks of use noticeable on the tabletop.
