Slices of beauty for the Rio table by Charlotte Perriand
Charlotte Perriand designed the Rio table in two different sizes. The re-edition that Cassina proposes today is from the first 1962 project, the home of Jacques Martin in Rio, Brazil, which also included a long bench in the same materials, Viennese straw and wood.
Between 1962 and 1967 Charlotte Perriand adapted this table for the Japanese Embassy in Paris enlarging its measurements.
Rio is made up of six staggered segments of different radii, an outer edge in solid wood and a central hole which becomes the centre of its spatial gravity.
The unusual beauty of this table makes it a decorative object for the home as well as a functional piece of furniture.
