PLAY OF MATERIALS

Designed by
Piero Lissoni
“A project is never born from a person’s mind, but it is the result of a group of people working together. I have worked with Lorenzo Porro for a long time, and we often tell each other stories. One of the stories that came out some time ago was: can we draw a table that doesn’t have a precise position? A round table has no leader. And then, is it possible to mix this kind of almost religious model of conviviality with a slightly more friendly way of sitting around this table? And we put those rotating trays that you always find on Chinese tables, but made with a little more craftsmanship. This is the story of Materic”.
Piero Lissoni, 2021

The Materic table designed in 2017 changes its face thanks to an upside-down assembly, where the black stained ash usually used for the base is now used for the top, a dark veined surface only interrupted by the central flush tray, and the conical base is expertly made in metal, matt satin stainless steel. The result has an extraordinary visual impact, between glamor, industrial and futurist.
The wooden top is available in all the wood of the collection, and the metal base is available in inox matt satin steel and brunished brass finishes.

The table top can also feature a rotating tray in the middle.
