Product description

The series of Othello tables is inspired by the meeting of pure and natural materials. The charm of expertly processed wood combined with stone or glass makes all decorations superfluous. With the Othello collection, Roberto Lazzeroni revisits the constructive rigour of 1950s and 60s Italian design. The legs in solid ash with a moka or wenge stain have the impact of a geometric sculpture. In contrast, the tops are soft and curved, in both the round and rectangular versions. The most distinctive feature of the Othello tables is the wooden structure with triangular cross-section and clean edges, beautifully echoed in the diamond workmanship along the edges of the tops. Poltrona Frau has chosen two different materials for the tops. Smoked glass, semi-transparent and light, exalts the architectural solidity of the legs. Fior di Pesco, a particularly prized variety of marble, grabs the attention with its rich and delicate veins which reveal translucent, almost transparent areas in natural light. Alternatively, there is the equally precious Calacatta gold marble. The glass Othello tables are integrated with visible spacers in brushed stainless steel. In the marble version, with polished or semi-polished finish, the underneath of the top is reinforced with a technical mesh to guarantee its resistance. The top is supported by an HPL laminate substrate.

Concept

The Othello series of tables was born from an encounter between pure and natural materials. The charm of the expertly processed wood, combined with stone or glass, makes all decorative work superfluous. Roberto Lazzeroni revisits the constructive rigour of 1950s and 1960s Italian design. The solid ash supports, with a moka or wenge stain, have the impact of a geometric sculpture. By contrast, the tops are soft and curved in both the round and rectangular versions. The clean-edged triangular section is a distinctive feature of the wooden structure and is beautifully echoed in the diamond workmanship along the edges of the tops.
Poltrona Frau chooses two material variants for the tops. The light, semi-transparent smoked crystal emphasises the architectural solidity of the supports. The fine Fior di Pesco marble catches the eye with its delicate and rich veins that in the daylight reveal areas that are translucent and almost transparent. Calacatta Oro marble is an equally fine alternative.
Othello crystal tables come with exposed brushed stainless steel spacers. In the marble version, with glossy or semi-glossy finish, the underneath of the top is reinforced with a technical mesh that guarantees its durability. An HPL laminate substrate supports the top.
