Mesa Due

Dining tables from Poltrona Frau, Designed by Lella Vignelli, Massimo Vignelli

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, it has created a number of new versions of the original table, calling them, fittingly, 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 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 bistro table with diameter of 120 cm, a dining table with diameter of 150 or 180 cm, and a rectangular table measuring 260 x 110.
The top is available in numerous versions ranging from wood to leather and through to marble. The wood versions are veneered in cut ash wood with moka or wenge stain finish. The 120 and 150 cm round tables can also be upholstered with Pelle Frau® SC leather. In this case the top is made from double panelling with tapered edge. The bottom part is finished with texturised black paint, the top part upholstered in leather. With the exception of the bistro table, all of the other models can be fitted with a Calacatta gold or Fior di Pesco marble top with polished or semi-polished finish.
The 180 cm round table can be assembled with a Lazy Susan consisting of two round tops of different diameters. In this case an aluminium swivel mechanism on steel spheres is fitted between the two surfaces.

The base of the Mesa Due table can be in grey pietra serena or in steel with upholstery in Cuoio Saddle Extra leather with contrast stitching or Pelle Frau® ColorSphere® with tone-on-tone stitching. The steel base maintains its stability through 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 black painted tubular steel to which a three-bracket joint plate is attached with adjustable supports to keep the surface level. In the rectangular table there are two supporting columns and the joint plates have 3 brackets. Only in the round 150 and 180 cm tables with marble top is there a larger support with five-bracket joint plate.
The Mesa Due tables with leather or saddle leather column and top in wood or upholstered in Pelle Frau® leather can come with a hideaway electric socket tower, chosen and requested by the customer upon purchase.


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.
