Mangiarotti Carrara Marble Side Table 'Eros series' for Skipper - 1970's
DESCRIPTIONOriginal Mangiarotti marble side table. This Eros series coffee table was designed by Angelo Mangiarotti for Skipper in Italy in 1971. It is made of solid white Carrara marble. This elegantly organic table has beautiful subtle veining throughout. Angelo Mangiarotti (26 February 1921–2 July 2012) was an Italian architect and industrial designer with a reputation built on "never forgetting the real needs of users". He mainly focused on the industrial process for buildings and design production. The main concept in Mangiarotti's architecture and design was established through the correct use of matter and technique. Given Mangiarotti's research on furniture without joints, this side table is an example of the result of a gravity interlocking design in which the side tabletop because of its weight stably fits into the truncated conical base. The word 'Eros' refers to the male-female coupling of this interlocking solution. It is truly an ingenious and elegant design.
