Design Franco Albini

PLAYFUL DESIGN

Designed by Franco Albini in 1958, thanks to its iconic design, Cicognino stands out in any space; its sophisticated, minimalist lines and playful shape, reminiscent of a small stork, convey a reassuring sense of familiarity.

Dubbed Cicognino, or “little stork”, this iconic design, is clean-cut and refined, witty yet reassuringly familiar. Franco Albini designed this table by reducing the frame to its essentials: the three slender legs, a table-top 40cm in diameter, and a wooden trim that makes it reminiscent of a tray. One of the three legs extends higher than the others, ending as a handle that can be used for moving the table about. Meantime, the table-top serves as a link between the other parts, augmenting the overall sense of balance and stability. The attention to detail and the unusual shape make this a highly expressive piece with an accomplished style that plays well in any context.
