Sempione table by Raffaella Mangiarotti for IOC Project Partners
Dezeen Showroom: Italian designer Raffaella Mangiarotti has collaborated with office furniture brand IOC Project Partners to create a versatile work desk called Sempione.
Balanced on slim metal legs, the Sempione table boasts an oval countertop that can be crafted from a variety of materials including Carrara marble, fumé glass and oak.
In addition, the table legs can be made from white, grey or black metal, allowing the design to blend seamlessly into different areas of an office from formal boardrooms to break-out areas.
Directly beneath Sempione's countertop is a supporting framework of interlocking metal spokes, based on the structure of chain necklaces.
"Designing Sempione, I wanted a very strong and stable table that would give an image of lightness," explained Mangiarotti.
"The slender legs are made strong by a chain under-top structure, similar to that used in jewellery, which represents a functional element as well as an ornamental one."
