The Naan table expresses a sort of double essence: an extremely delicate appearance but with a decisive solidity to its frame. Piero Lissoni deliberately highlights the austerity of its form. The ultra light rectangular tabletop is only 10 mm thick. It posed a stimulating challenge for Cassina, which drew from its extensive woodworking experience, blending artisan tradition and a modern industrial approach.
From living rooms to meeting rooms, Naan adds a discrete yet distinctive personality.
Its essence is enriched by smoked oak. In this innovative process wood is subjected to high temperatures, granting it extreme resistance (to humidity as well) and a dark finishing, which, unlike traditional varnishes that provide a flatter and more artificial effect, preserves the wood while leaving its natural grain fully visible.
More durable and compact, the wood is practically transformed into fossil. The heat-induced colouration penetrates the fibres deeply, thus remaining unaltered over time.
Naan is available in two versions: extendable or non-extendable
Dimensions: cm 240 x 95 cm, h. cm 72 (extended cm 340 x cm 95); cm 300 x cm 95 x h. cm 72
“It exudes a certain freshness of conception. A frame traced by minimal lines. Extremely fine elements, unconventional proportions and exaggerated dimensions combine to create a strong, solid and resilient piece. Though constructed entirely of wood, the more you study it, the more it seems made of air.”
