MENHIR | Console table By ACERBIS
Oval console table
Wood, Steel, Marble
Designed in 1983 by Giotto Stoppino and Lodovico Acerbis, the Menhir collection is inspired by the stone monoliths of the British Isles and France, which are the archetype of the column.
This research gave rise to the design of a base consisting of a steel column and marble drums with different finishes and shapes placed on top of each other.
The current version maintains the drums’ shape but has more contemporary finishes, with matt marble and new lacquered tops in colours that recall the gritty imagination of the late 60s and evoke the company’s heritage.
Base units and tops
System of low tables and consolles feature versatility, combination of various shapes, sizes and materials.
The base unit is made of epoxy powder coated steel in black matt finish, available in the following heights: 36.2 - 42.5 - 48.8 for tables and 80.2 for consoles.
The tops in the Ø 80, 100, 120 cm size and 180x40 consolles are made of medium density wood fibre, 20 mm thick, worked on the edge. The tops are available in glossy lacquered finishes in burgundy, pink, dark green, mustard yellow, brick red, clay, white and black or in the special inlaid and brushed open grain veneer, in black ash and dark stained walnut.
The drums have five different sizes and weights and ring the column, giving the table the necessary weight to guarantee stability and create supporting structures with a differentiated design. Monolithic elements are available in matt marble, in the Carrara Statuario white, Marquinia black, Levanto red and Alpi green finish, a chromatic variety that reveals a typically Italian tradition.
