Mario Bellini Il Colonnata Oval Dining Table in Carrara Marble for Cassina - 1970s
DESCRIPTIONCassina produced this Il Colonnata dining table by Mario Bellini in Italy 1977. A forest of massive primordial columns. The sensuality of marble celebrates the material, evoking the mysterious solemnity of Stonehenge.
Mario Bellini (1935-) is trained as an architect and became one of the leading designers in postwar Italian style. In the beginning of his career, he worked together with Olivetti and Cassina which resulted in an early knowledge of synthetic resins and polyurethanes. His furniture is exciting, both in its use of material as in the originality of his designs. Bellini did not believe in precise boundaries of design, instead, he designed for the relationship of man and environment. It is impossible to pigeon hole Bellini's oeuvre, as his work is so complex and original. Literature: - Gramigna, Giuliana. Repertorio del Design Italiano 1950-2000 per L'Arredamento Domestico.
