The D.859.1 table, designed primarily as a meeting table for up to ten people, stands out not only for its impressive size – over 3,60 meters long – but especially for its simple yet refined design. The legs are notable for their fine-membered modernity, creating a trapezoidal single-span bridge upon which the large tapered top conveys the idea of aerodynamics. Designed in 1959 for the auditorium adjoining the Time &Life Building in New York. The trapezoidal base in solid wood is the perfect combination of elegance, lightness and stability. This architectural element makes it possible to make tables with large tops.
Originally made of solid ash with bronze ferrules, it is now also available in a darker-toned wood such as Black Stained Ash. In addition to its original dimensions, the D.859.1 is available in two smaller version that faithfully reproduce the harmony and proportions of the original design.
