Description

The D.859.1 table, designed primarily as a meeting table for up to ten people, stands out not only for its impressive size—over 3,60 meters long—but especially for its simple yet refined design. The legs are notable for their fine-membered modernity, creating a trapezoidal single-span bridge upon which the large tapered top conveys the idea of aerodynamics. Originally made of solid ash with bronze ferrules, it is now also available in a darker-toned wood such as Black Stained Ash. In addition to its original dimensions, the D.859.1 is available in two smaller version that faithfully reproduce the harmony and proportions of the original design. “Four distinct themes are interwoven in this building: the synthesis of the arts; the interplay of magnitudes in the juxtaposition of a small, almost homey space with the colossal bulk of the skyscraper; the representational and communicative function of the architecture and design; and lastly, the bond with advertising and the capital.” Daniel Sherer, “Gio Ponti a New York”, in Espressioni Gio Ponti, catalogue for the exhibition at the Triennale di Milano, 2011.
