815 OLIMPINO By Cassina
Glass and steel table
Tempered Glass, Glass and Steel
This table was designed by Parisi in 1955 for a villa near Como. The Cassina Research and Development Centre has conducted a careful study of the original model to bring this unique project into serial production.
The slender metal tubular structure of the Olimpino table holds a rectangular monolithic sheet of glass that allows the articulated metal structure below to be admired. The two pairs of upright legs, characterised by a typical Y-shape, have internal upper arms that converge to join under the top while the external arms diverge to hold and elegantly support it; a double crossbar gives strength to the legs and divides close to the edge to form a double V shape. Its uniqueness is further defined by elegant arrow-shaped wooden feet that nicely contrast with the metal of its legs and crossbar. Expertly designed, it has a bold appearance making it highly recognisable.
