The Basello Coffee Table was designed by renowned designer Achille Castiglioni for furniture brand Zanotta.
Stylish Italian designer Castiglioni was the third son of sculptor Giannino Castiglioni and part of an artistic family, his two brothers being architects. Castiglioni joined his brothers at the architectural design practice after the Second World War, focussing on exhibition design and a number of architectural projects. From 1969 onwards the designer taught architectural and design subjects at the Politecnico di Torino and the Politecnico di Milano. His designs are renowned for their Italian chic aesthetic and innovative blend of material, texture and function.
The Basello Coffee Table is an elegant modern table that has an artistic, exhibition-worthy aesthetic. Featuring an unusual folding design, the table has two levels that can be opened and closed and swivelled to a configuration chosen by the user. Standing at 45cm tall, 65cm long and 30cm wide, the table has dimensions of 105 x 30 x 45 cm when opened fully. Constructed in medium density fibreboard with a monotone lacquer, the table resists stains and scratches and is easy to keep clean. The sophisticated colour palette and clean silhouette make this a great choice of table for minimalist styles of décor and workspaces.
