This is one lovely table so I suppose it should come as no surprise that it hits right over the 3 grand mark.
Designed by Maurizio Marconato and Terry Zappa, the Branch Table (2007) has a hand-cut, hand-joined solid wood base that was inspired by Charles Paul Landon’s 1799 painting “Daedalus and Icarus.” In the painting, the shape of the mythological characters’ wings is both graceful and bold, which the designers captured in the shape of each end of their table. The glass top sits on the tips of these “wings” and the result is a sculpture of shapes, formed by positive and negative spaces. These angles, while at first glance decorative, also serve a functional purpose by maximizing legroom for friends and family gathering around the table. Whether seen from the side or above, the Branch Table has an inherent lightness that challenges the assumption that a solid wood base has to be bulky and overscaled.
Solid ash with a walnut stain; tempered glass.
