Product description

Poltrona Frau has carried out an interesting philological work on the Mesa project: on the basis of a number of original designs by Lella and Massimo Vignelli, two new versions of the original table were produced: Mesa and Mesa Due. Due - two - like its simple geometric shapes, a circle and a cone, combined together to form a table bursting with personality and style. The Mesa table model with diameter of 135 cm, slate top and load bearing column in pietra serena, is joined by new sizes that offer a greater variety of possible uses: the Mesa Due model comes as a dining table with diameter of 150 cm and a bistrot side table with diameter of 120 cm. The table top is in MDF with a wenge- or moka-stained cut ash wood veneer, or upholstered in Pelle Frau® leather. The base of Mesa Due can be in grey pietra serena, in steel with Cuoio Saddle Extra leather upholstery with contrast stitching, or in Pelle Frau® leather from the Color System with tone-on-tone stitching. The steel base remains stable thanks to a special system of internal counterweights and has a plastic shaped tip at the bottom to protect the floor. The joint between the top and the column is made of ‘nero bruno’ painted tubular steel to which a three-bracket joint plate is attached with adjustable supports to keep the surface level. The Mesa Due tables with leather and saddle-leather column can come with a hideaway electric socket tower, chosen and requested by the customer during the purchasing phase.

The concept of the table in its sculptural essentiality. Mesa is a project by Lella & Massimo Vignelli from 1985. This fertile matrix of developments has been drawn on by Poltrona Frau to create a continually expanding and transversal collection. Mesa Due Meeting Table is the new version for workspaces. It combines sophisticated materials, technological performance and flexible design. A system of rectangular or oval meeting tables. The top is made up of several panels and can therefore be expanded to various lengths. The number of legs can be increased to accommodate the size.

All the tables can be integrated with cable-management systems and lift-up central panels for easy access to the electrical parts. The top with double MDF panelling is entirely covered in Pelle Frau® leather from the Color System. The frame supporting the top is in black-painted iron. The steel support column, stabilised by a counterweight system is covered in Pelle Frau® leather from the Color System with tone-on-tone stitching or in Cuoio Saddle Extra Leather with contrasting stitching.

Playing with the leather covering on the rectangular top allows identification of the President Area, featuring an inlay on the short side of a panel with richer, more important colour and finish.

The collection also includes new variants of the Mesa Due round table. Both the 120 and 150 diameters are perfect as an elegant table for small meetings. The steel base, covered in Pelle Frau® leather from the Color System or in Cuoio Saddle Extra Leather, can now be fitted with a hidden cable column. The ash top is available in a moka- or wenge-stained finish. A base is also available in pietra serena, in line with the original Mesa project.
