manzù table

Pio Manzù

This time the focus of attention is a table designed for the Agnelli home in Rome: Manzù imagined a tabletop mounted on a central support secured to the floor. With the slenderness typical of Eero Saarinen’s designs and the resourcefulness of Pierre Chareau, he styled a base with a sculptural quality that supports a round top, with a central part turning relative to the outer crown where people sit at, so as to provide more effective service to each.

The table with central leg by Pio Manzù is the result of a profile rotating around a central axis. The archive drawings show how the profile was designed according to different geometric profiles, which generated a series of shapes with different tensions.

Concept
The doors to the archives of the works by Pio Manzù open again for Alias, who, after the manzù armchair, now brings to life another historic design by the brilliant protagonist of Italian car design of the Sixties. The table reflects the ability of the historic Italian-made design brand to select from the past an object having great innovative potential and transferring it into today’s world with a few touches that make it extremely current.
