DOGE

Design Carlo Scarpa

ULTRARATIONAL EMBLEM

A sculptural structure that has become an emblem of Italian design, a trademark of the new ultrarational movement that in the late 1960s contemplated throwing off the restrictions of Rationalism by returning to traditional aesthetic values.

A veritable masterpiece of the Italian design tradition, this sculpture-like table became, in the late-1960s, the emblem of the “Ultrarazionale” movement which, shrugging off the restraints imposed by the Rationalists, aimed to re- embrace traditional aesthetic values. Part of Cassina’s Simon Collection, the Doge table has been revisited with new textures and new materials. The architectural aluminium or satin-finish steel base, set off by the flat wide profiles, is the essential part of the table, while the elegantly refined mechanism linking top to base can be seen from above, through the glass of the table top. The new-look Doge table is available in five sizes, all taking their cue from Carlo Scarpa’s original design, with the table top being available in float-glass as well as white Carrara or black Marquiña marble.
