From the legendary Italian firm responsible for iconic Maserati and Ferrari masterpieces, comes a new collaboration with Calligaris of Italy. Introducing, the Orbital Dining Table.
Unveiled at the Milan Furniture Fair in 2011, the Orbital Table was the Interior Innovation Award Winner for 2012, a prestigious title awarded by the German Design Council.
From the Pininfarina webpage,
Orbital was designed and developed with a solid, harmonious base: the rigid polyurethane column which can be painted black or white, makes the structure extremely stable, while the large central opening gives it lightness and character.
The new highly transparent glass top reveals the ingenious automatic open
ing mechanism with its metal arms. This uncluttered, minimalist system supports the two glass extensions which open simultaneously from under the table with a fluid, circular movement.
Fully open, the table can accommodate ten seats. All the metal parts are painted with the new Matt Silver finish, with an opaque silvery effect that enhances the whole.
