A sculpted, almost primitive table, this icon of formal purity was first designed in 1985 by Lella and Massimo Vignelli for Poltrona Frau. Mesa table combines the two simple geometric shapes of a circle and a cone.
The top is composed of Ligurian slate which, thanks to the traditional splitting technique, retains the rock’s natural grooves and lines on the surface. The supporting column is made from grey Pietra Serena sandstone. The overall effect is a physical monolith which is solid and compact yet light at the same time.
The junction between the table top and the column is formed of tubular burnished steel and is mounted with three brackets whose adjustable spacers make it possible to change the position of the top.
A burnished sheet steel surface base gives the surface additional stability and strength, whilst the base of the stone support is finished with a shaped tip of black plastic.
