  • Catalogue Essay

    In 1961, Milan’s Chamber of Commerce for Industry and Agriculture published a book on the furniture and furniture makers of Italy in which they illustrated the present model stacking tables. This book attributed the present design to the Lombardian company Sala Pietro Arredamenti. Four years earlier, Domus presented this model in an article illustrating and describing an exhibition called “Colori e forme nella casa d’oggi” in which Ico and Luisa Parisi designed a space where leading Lombardian architects presented rooms meant to synthesize industrial design, art, and architecture. The present model tables were placed in a room designed by architects Sergio Asti and Sergio Favri that included works designed by Angelo Ostuni and Renato Forti, among others. Based on Domus’s description of the room and the formal elements of the table, it is likely that the design duo Ostuni and Forti designed the present stacking tables.
