Ballerina is a minimalist side table created by Tokyo-based designers Nendo for Marsotto Edizioni. The side table is designed for Marsotto Edizioni an Italian brand specializing in marble furniture. Two contradicting elements, which are lightness and weight, were mixed – achieved by cutting out a part of the tip of the legs in a shape of an arc so to give the legs some lightness, whilst maintaining the inherent dignity of the marble. It was named “Ballerina” after its appearance embodying standing on tiptoes.
