The main feature of the Gazelle tables, designed by Claesson Koivisto Rune for Capdell, is the slender, yet sculptural, legs that support the thin tabletops.
The leg design, in cast aluminium, is the result of ’morphing’ a circle at the top into a ’softened triangle’-shape at its base. This sculptural gesture is inspired by both Southern European classics such as Gio Ponti’s Superleggera as well as the slimmed-down elegance of Scandinavian wooden furniture from the 50’s and 60’s. These often feature parts with refined sections where shape and diameter vary along their length in a sinuous fashion.
As you approach a Gazelle table, the play of light across the high gloss paint or polished aluminium surface catches your eye and invites you to touch.
The overall impression is a super-thin table that provides a refined elegance to fit any room. An iconic silhouette through extreme reduction of mass.
The assembly concept makes virtually any table size or shape possible.
