Product description

CAVALLETTO table (1950)
This table projects a feeling of lightness combined with a perfectly made structure.
In the construction phases, the assembly and dismantling processes required solutions focusing on an analysis of the structure that incorporates opposing tension points.
The need for a construction plan that reduces the volume and weight appeared during the later design stages.
The answer was provided by the dynamics of opposing forces: the traction and compression of the structural elements to achieve balance and stability, thanks to a subtle choice of method and research.
This table reinforces the value of form and function, which highlights the direction of the research between methodology and rigor applied to all Franco Albini pieces.
