Delfi

Design Marcel Breuer

ELEGANCE OF LINE

The design table with rectangular top reflects the re-design of a Rationalist model created by Marcel Bauer in the 1930s for the Bologna home of Dino Gavina.

PRODUCTION YEAR

1969

Delfi forms part of the Ultrarazionale collection, which was launched in 1968, and is composed of sculptural pieces designed by Carlo Scarpa, typified by his signature attention to detail and choice of materials. This table is a re- design of a Rationalist model created by Marcel Breuer in the 1930s for Dino Gavina’s residence in Bologna. At the end of the 1960s, Scarpa began to re- examine the original concept, effecting some variations, in agreement with the designer. In 2009, Tobia Scarpa, Carlo Scarpa’s son, suggested yet another variation: this time, a glass table-top so as to highlight the elegant brass supports and the fluting on the marble bases, the better to see the formal elegance of the piece.

This German designer and architect who was originally from Hungary, enrolled at the Bauhaus School when he was just 18. Four years later he had become one of its main teachers. In charge of its furniture section, Breuer encouraged students to look at how furniture and furnishing could be industrially manufactured, tackling the relative technological and stylistic problems with a through and methodological approach.

Subsequently, in 2009, Scarpa proposed the new glass topped table thus offering a valuable aesthetic solution that magnified the sculptural elegance of the shapes, allowing the refined brass supports and the fluting in the marble bases to be seen.
