FUNCTIONALITY AND BEAUTY

The historic Rio design low table combines uncommon beauty and utmost functionality in an asymmetrical structure that, over time, has proven itself to be a true interior decor work of art.

PRODUCTION YEAR

2015

Currently available in just one size, the Rio low table was originally created by Charlotte Perriand as two. Between 1962, the year she designed the piece and 1967, Charlotte Perriand made a larger version intended for the Japanese embassy in Paris. The unusual beauty of the Rio table, matched by its functionality make it a veritable work of art. The six segments, made in solid wood, each with a different radius, offset from each other, create a jagged outer edge, while the hole in the centre evokes a centre of gravity. Cassina re-issued the original version in 1962, reproducing the original lines, thanks also to the extraordinary crafts skills of the artisans of Meda, a town in the Brianza area north of Milan.
