Dining Table Model “Corinto” by Ferdinando Meccani , Italy 1978

  • Description
    Dining table model “Corinto” by Ferdinando Meccani for Meccani Arredamento.An anything but modest dining room table is the “Corinto” by the Italian designer Ferdinando Meccani. The table was designed in 1978 in tandem with the sideboard that bears the same name.The special thing is that the volume of the table seems to have been carved out of the sideboard and therefore shows a deeper connection in terms of design than when an object is part of a 'standard' series.The base of this table consists of cherry wood square frames that are placed on top of each other and then rotated by forty-five degrees. All parts are attached to each other by two screws, making the frame very sturdy. What is immediately noticeable are the inlaid wooden wenge wedges on the corners of the frames, which also show a beautiful miter joint. The result is a shape that resembles a column and creates a kind of trompe l'oeil in which the frame parts create a sense of movement. Due to the manner in which they are placed. Richly patinated wooden parts are placed on top of each other and when you look through the glass from above, a multitude of elementary shapes such as triangles and squares are created. The effect of this is that your gaze is drawn in. A square glass top is aesthetically subordinate to the sculptural work beneath it. Not just for beauty, but of course important for the practical sake of it. This “Corinto” table was completely handmade in the Meccani workshop in Cascino located in Tuscany. The condition is very good with the exception of minimal signs of use."
