As you enter a craftsman's workshop, you find tools and machinery, fragments and processing excess scattered all over the floor and resting up against the walls. This is exactly the image which inspired Alain Gilles, fascinated by the possibility of creating, starting from materials whose very irregularity makes them unique.
The collection of Fragment coffee tables is specifically characterized by the combination of irregular elements, as if they had been found accidentally in a workshop: metal frames, slightly different one from another, are combined with table tops of various shapes (square, rectangular, octagonal) and various materials (wood, two versions of "terrazzo", marble). One particular new feature is constituted by Venetian terrazzo, which Bonaldo has introduced into its collections to pay tribute to the typical flooring used in the Venetian region and, in general, in the Northeast Italy, which consists of chips of marble and stones of different sizes, poured with a limestone (or cement) binder mixed with other chips.
The wide range of shapes, materials and sizes enhances the possibilities of combining the coffee tables which, together, create highly original settings.
