Piatto is a minimalist family of tables designed by London-based studio Industrial Facility for Fucina. The range includes small side tables, large coffee tables and high display tables. Piatto tables are perhaps familiar- the angles, joins and shapes are all recognisable- but by beguiling the eye they appear lightweight. The collection includes tables with highly polished vertical planes that cut across horizontal surfaces, creating the optical illusion of only two legs. Others, by means of small cantilevers, appear deliberately unbalanced. The contrast of heavy steel with lightness of appearance is achieved using Fucina’s artistic expertise in metal construction and finishing. Piatto’s designs are composed entirely from the geometries of the square and the circle, expressing the elemental nature of the collection.
