PIANA WOOD L
Rectangular wood veneer table
Steel, Wood veneer
«Tables are usually designed following a construction logic that involves using different materials for the top and the structure, especially in the case of valuable raw materials such as marble and granite. If we think of a classic table with Carrara marble top, we note that almost always the legs or the support are made of wood or metal. So we thought: why not use the same material for all the components, from horizontal to vertical? This is how Piana was conceived, a programme of tables that explores the theme of materiality by bringing the same finish used on the top to the support or - in larger versions - to the trestles. The result is a collection with an almost totally mono-material look, far removed from the classic top-support combination. As far as design goes, it is simple - a metal frame to be covered as desired. However, every material requires its own special treatment, which depends on factors such as weight and possible work-processes».
Piana is a collection of tables where the material is the star. Colours and finishes extend from the top throughout the entire structure, resulting in an object that is integral, solid, using just one material. Piana tables, in various sizes, have a steel frame that takes on different shapes: with a round top and central support or with a rectangular or oval top supported by trestles. A versatile product, which architects and interior designers can use as desired, including it in their projects because, depending on the shape and finish chosen, the table changes. Round and in Carrara marble, Piana has a vaguely retro style, while oval or rectangular, again in marble, it takes on a majestic appearance. Wood brings warmth to the versions that favour this material for table-top and trestles, while the combination of steel and HPL creates a simple, linear table, ideal in the workplace.
