Angelo Mangiarotti for Skipper 'Eros' Series Carrara Marble Tall Side Table

$ 12,450
  • Description
    Angelo Mangiarotti for Skipper 'Eros' Series Carrara marble tall side table, 1971. Designed by Angelo Mangiarotti for Skipper, the 'Eros' series, this iconic Carrara side table is supported on one conical leg base, with beautiful subtle veining throughout the marble and organic soft curves throughout. With its original Skipper label affixed to the underside. A beautiful iconic and sculptural piece to add warmth and interest to any interior style.

    Angelo Mangiarotti’s (1921-2012) central philosophy as an architect was to create forms that responded directly to the material’s properties. The weight of marble inspired him to create the 'Eros' series of tables in the 1970's for Skipper. It relies solely on gravity to bond the slabs of marble together without fixings or glues – a masterstroke in minimalist philosophy and engineering. This table effectively has ‘gravity’ joints. The slab of Carrara marble sits snugly the solid marble conical leg making it incredibly sturdy. The word 'Eros' refers to the male-female coupling and represents this interlocking design. It is truly an ingenious and elegant design.
