Design by: Gino Carollo
For Bonaldo, Gino Carollo has designed Origami, a table and a console which draw their inspiration from the namesake ancient oriental art.
“I have always been drawn to the manual craftsmanship of our traditional artisans and to that sophisticated and subtle art of origami”, explains the designer. Indeed, the base of the table consists of thin metal sheets bent just like origami paper, with the aim of making the frame stable and achieving the utmost visual lightness, almost as if it were challenging gravity. The top is bevelled to recall the design of the bases and to streamline the overall appearance further. The base is in painted metal, or burnished finish. The table top is in various wood finishes, in glass or ceramic.
