Atlas Extendable Dining Table by Draenert
Spare and striking in its “modern strictness,” Georg Appeltshauser’s Atlas Extendable Dining Table features an ingenious extension rotating mechanism that ensures the symmetry of the table whether extended or closed. Made of natural stone wood, with three different bases and a variety of stone finishes, Atlas is the latest in a long line of museum-worthy coffee and dining tables from Draenert.
Platium Dining Table by Gallotti&Radice
Oscar and Gabriele Buratti’s Platium Dining Table embodies the Gallotti&Radice ideals of simplicity, elegance, and transparency. The tabletop is available in bright or satin black glass, with a wooden base covered with Sahara Noir marble with a “supermirror” bright stainless steel bottom plate.
Mizar Dining Table by Giorgetti
With its base of cast bronze and unique marble top, Roberto Lazzeroni’s Mizar Table makes a strong visual impact. The gold Calacatta marble top, divided into four parts, adds a luxurious, surprising touch with its shifting tones and colors.
UFO Dining Tables by Emmemobili
Ferruccio Laviani’s series of UFO tables feature a top completely made of solid, multilayer shaped wood set on a molded, shaped cone covered with veneer. Infinitely customizable, this is a table designed to go anywhere, available in “unlimited” sizes with made-to-order details such as a glass or marble top, wiring, or an embedded lazy Susan.
Kauri Beam Dining Table by Riva 1920
Designed by CR & S. RIVA 1920, the Kauri Beam Dining Table features a single, stunning board of Kauri wood, harvested in New Zealand from trees believed to be 7,000 to 50,000 years old. The geometric iron base with visible welding completes the warm, artisanal look and feel.
Gio Ponti D.859.1 Dining Table by Molteni&C
Designed originally as a meeting table for up to ten people, this table is impressive as much for its size as for its simple, refined designed. The elegantly modern legs create a trapezoidal, single-span bridge supporting the aerodynamically tapered top. The ideal balance of traditional and modern, the table is made of solid wood with top finishes in natural Ash and wood-stained black.
Infinity Dining Table by Porada
Designed by Stefano Bigi, this contemporary dining table reflects Porada’s passionate “love for the wood.” The base of solid wood is hand turned by expert craftsmen, with the elegant, organic curves, set on a thin metal disc, supporting a perfectly balanced, tempered glass top.
Holo Dining Table by Kristalia
“A design company with a jazz soul,” Kristalia’s Holo is the combination of the company’s innovative technology and designer Kensaku Oshiro’s creativity. The highly original base features an oval hole, in a softly molded shape achieved through a process that involves repeated molding and bending. The Fenix-NTM® top’s matte, anti-reflective surface lends warm appeal and a soft touch.
Plinto Linto Y2W – Meridiani Editions
Andrea Parisio’s sculptural table is marked by three elements — a monolithic base, a light structure, and a top — each of which is available in different shapes and materials to allow for endless personalization, while remaining true to the neat lines and balanced design. The metal base is available in black varnishes and bronzed brass, with the plinth and tops in wood veneer, matte or glossy lacquer, and marble.
S-Penny Dining Table by Henge
Famous for creating “presences that live and age, developing their own unique patina and personality” Henge’s S-Penny Dining Table, designed by Massimo Castagna, is a striking piece in brass and silver, burnished by hand using traditional techniques from an exclusive Henge recipe. The top is black lacquered solidwood topped by stone, in marble, stone, and granite finishes.
