DESIGNER TABLE

A design table with an innovative take-apart concept for which architect Franco Albini uses the strut component, a recurring theme in his concept and a solution already employed in the iconic Veliero and Infinito bookcases.

Franco Albini designed this table using the strut element that he had already employed in the design of the Veliero and Infinito bookshelves. In this instance, the legs serve as the vertical elements, solid, turned along their entire surface except for the square section onto which the horizontal table- top is installed. The upturned wooden cones that surmount each leg act as spacers between the cross-beams of the frame and the table-top which, given how light it looks, almost seems to hang suspended in mid-air. The connection between the legs and the cross-pieces is highlighted by visible screws. These remind us that the TL3 table can be disassembled. Cassina’s revisitation of this table, effected in collaboration with the Fondazione Albini, is based on archive drawings and includes the use of a glass table-top so that the impeccable carpentry details can be seen more clearly.
