The main idea was to make a piece of sculpture,” says Paris-based designerMattia Bonetti of the unique dining table he dreamed up in 2003. “I was imagining something telluric, from an abyss under the surface of the sea or in a very deep cave. Trees, corals, bubbling volcanoes—all these shapes together become a table, et voilà!” Fittingly, he named it Abyss.
Sheet steel, because of its ability to be rendered perfectly flat, was used for the surface, while the baroque base was cast in bronze. Then, to achieve the glossy, electric hues in his imagination, Bonetti called upon a cousin, a professional gilder, to coat theluxury dining table with white gold leaf and colorful transparent varnishes.

Big One Dining Table by DIMORESTUDIO
Emiliano Salci and Britt Moran invested in their individual experience with the profession and study of Design, Art and Fashion, and founded DIMORESTUDIO in 2003. Since that moment, they have designed and carried out every project in a personal and recognizable way: objects created by historical design masters live together with reclaimed materials and other “bespoke” objects to create and forge a particular atmosphere.
From the Progetto Palmador series, this table is in glossy lacquered wood and features 20-micron silver-plated brass inlays. This modern dining table was designed in 2015.
Paris-based designer Maria Pergay is known for her innovative use of stainless steel—a passion that began in the 1960s and has continued into her eighties. Upon a commission to work with steel, Pergay began to create her now-iconic stainless steel furniture, with her first collection including the renowned Flying Carpet daybed (1968) and the Ring chair (1970). In 2007, the interior designer made this unique dining table in stainless steel and nickel-plated bronze.

Using Wolston’s freeform aluminum pieces, the table represents Wolston’s maturation as an artisan and furnituremaker. Conveying his strong narrative voice, Wolston’s new furniture pieces employ freely illustrated aluminum pieces to present a tactile and compelling design statement.
