Description Angelo Mangiarotti for Skipper very rare and large Triforglio coffee table in black Marquina marble with an elegant shamrock-shape designed tabletop interlocked with tops of three fitted conical bases. Original skipper sticker on underside.

Given Mangiarotti's research on furniture without joints, this table was an example of the result of a gravity interlocking design in which the tabletop because of its weight stably fits into the truncated conical legs. The word 'Eros' refers to the male-female coupling of this interlocking solution. It is truly an ingenious and elegant design.
