'Il Colonnato' Dining Table by Mario Bellini - 1977
'Il Colonnato', a red travertine round dining table, created by Italian designer Mario Bellini for Cassina in 1977. Bellini's 'Il Colonnato' is an exceptional and minimalistic piece made entirely of solid red travertine and consists of four cylindrical legs supporting a round tabletop. The legs are not fixed to the tabletop, which means they can also be moved to the centre, as shown in the photos. For this design, Bellini was inspired by ancient Roman columns. The travertine shows beautiful veins. The combination of rich earthy red tones creates a harmonious colour palette. This iconic design item will highlight the elegance of a dining room. It’s a highly sought-after centrepiece, in great original condition.
Mario Bellini (born February 1, 1935, in Milan) is an Italian architect and designer. He graduated from the Milan Polytechnic - Faculty of Architecture in 1959 and began working as an architect himself in the early 1960s. He is the winner among others of 8 Compasso d’Oro and prestigious architecture awards including the Medaglia d’Oro conferred on him by the President of the Italian Republic. Like many other Italian architects, his activities range from architecture and urban planning to product and furniture design. His early international success grew rapidly during the first two decades, especially in the design sector, and reached its peak in 1987 with a personal retrospective exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art of New York where the timeless Camaleonda design was exhibited.
