Concept

The table-tops are clean-cut and uncluttered, in glass, marble or wood, but what comes as a surprise is the support feature, either the central pedestal or the trestle version, both done as a metal cage, but not closed in by rigid bars but by festoons of aluminium - lacquered or chromed - folded with a slight twist on the vertical axis.

More than 100 combinations for the rebirth of the Boboli table by Rodolfo Dordoni: A technical wonder, fruit of research work.
First launched in 2007, the Boboli tables have been developed with the technical know-how typical of the Cassina Research and Development Centre. The project is a bold challenge due to the thin vertical strips of metal, twisted to create a sculptural effect, which form the table’s base that can now support new geometries, even for the larger versions. Further stability is also guaranteed thanks to the top which is now completely fixed to the base with a wooden undertop. The Boboli tables are named after the historical gardens in Florence in homage to its beautiful landscape. A landscape that is reflected in this upgraded collection. 5 sizes, 3 shapes, 4 base finishes and 5 top finishes substitute the first collection to create a total of more than 100 combinations. Alongside the already present chrome version, the three new base finishes are in painted matt black, chromed dark gold and gunmetal aluminium. These bases can be freely matched with a larger variety of table tops in two new wood essences, ash-wood tinted black and Canaletto walnut, or back-painted glass in petroleum, taupe and anthracite to create a unique landscape for the home.
