Knoll presents Grasshopper, a collection of tables designed by Piero Lissoni, a perfect combination of pure geometry and synthesis of design. The modern table is where key decisions are taken, accommodating a range of functions from family reunions to business meetings.
Grasshopper also includes a family of low tables conceived as a minimal planetary system. Suspended at different heights, they turn as if floating in thin air, supporting the hypothesis that a gentle spirit is an ethereal gift. The low tables use the same materials and combine with the main round tabletop to produce secondary, differently sized tables that can be moved along the perimeter, tracing out circular orbits.
The versatility of these tables derives not only from their clear, geometric aesthetic and their different sizes and heights, but also from the variety of finishes available for the top. Easily adaptable, they add an equally refined touch to the private living room or the public lounge area.
Top: Bevel-edge satin smooth laminate, marble or chestnut veneer. Rounded edge back silk-screen painted frosted tempered extra clear glass
Base: polished chrome, burnished or painted metal.
Note: the tables are fixed when they are in a set of two. The table of dia 70 can be moved 90° if it is part of a set of three.
Tables are available in laminate, glass, wood and coated marble in a wide range of colours and in the veneer.
