$ 10,000
  • Description
    Since their first meeting at IUAV in Venice to their move to the Venetian countryside, Tobia Scarpa and Afra Bianchin shared first a degree, then a marriage and a career that marked their lives and those of Italian design at the turn of the 1970s and 1980s-golden years for design made in Italy.
    In the village on the border of Valdobbiadene, in a modest studio, the two began the work that opened the collaboration with Flos-it was 1962. So with Fantasma, Pierrot, Ariette and Papillona, the lighting brand lit its signature lamps. Already loyal followers of Aldo Bartolomeo's Stildomus, for which they designed Torcello-the first furniture system that allowed panels to be joined by a metal profile; in 1966, for B&B Italia, Tobia and Afra designed one of the cornerstones of comfort-symbolic furniture: Coronado, a piece that looked beyond national borders.
    Here for B&B they designed the table called "Tobio" with a wooden foot covered by leather and a top entirely in pink marble.
    Good condition, fully original, the table can be dismantled into top and base for shipping.
