Design by Alain Gilles – a special edition to celebrate the 10th anniversary of an icon
Ten years ago Alain Gilles met Bonaldo and a nonconformist idea came out – a bold project for a product destined to make history: Big Table.
The distinguishing feature of Big Table, which made it an absolutely original table, is its base made of four laser-cut steel legs that intertwine and overlap, creating an image with a strong graphic appearance, where the perception changes depending on the observer’s perspective. It is a game of balances, a magical contrast between the linearity of the table top and the dynamism suggested by the slanted legs.
This is supplemented by the broad choice of colours: in its more famous version, Big Table has bright multi-coloured legs that emphasise its strong personality.
10 years after its launch, Big Table is produced in a special edition to celebrate this vital milestone in the history of a product which has become a true icon of design.
In this new version, the table has a rectangular green marble top with a strong graphic pattern and colours with an extraordinary intensity. The table top is combined with the steel base painted in its same colour, thereby creating a single whole that never ceases to astound and inspire.
