The fundamental aspects of the project are contained in a single detail, around which all the work has been developed: the joint between the leg and the top, characterised by a contact reduced to an absolute mini- mum, based on the meeting up of the respective vertices. This construction is achieved through a precise structural gesture - the combination of two L-shaped profiles, which are cut at 45° to be joined at 90°, forming the table leg and the relative crosspiece. The latter, in its turn rotated 45° with respect to the flat surface on top of it, outlines a segment of emptiness that is associated with a portion of material removed. The resul- ting geometry creates the impression that the ends of the top are precariously resting on four single points, suggesting a fragile perceptual balance. The configuration of the angle varies according to the point of view, thanks to the alternation of surfaces and edges, which intersecting with inclinations of 90° and 45° interrupt the coplanar alignment between leg and top. The top, consisting of a simple parallelepiped, is the funda- mental element that completes the entire structure, thanks to the relationship that is established between the edges positioned in perfect correspondence. Lastly, the series of different surfaces defines a sequence of facets that, accentuated by the contrast between light and shadow, adds a further interpretation of the dialogue between the different elements.
