$8,450

About

Angelo Mangiarotti, side table 'Eros', white marble, Italy, 1970s This sculptural table by Angelo Mangiarotti is a skillful example of postmodern design. The lotus leaf like side table features no joints or clamps and is architectural in its structure. The tables rest on the one cone shaped leg and the construction is gravity-based, where the top 'locks' itself onto the marble cones as a result of the weight of the material. As a result, the entire structure is stabile and strong. This table highlights the period in which a diverse path of material research was carried out by manufacturers and designers. Angelo Mangiarotti continues with his experiments in marble with producer Skipper, creating forms that arise from the studies on the joints and from the characteristics of the material itself. Angelo Mangiarotti (1921-2012) was an Italian architect and Industrial designer with a reputation to mainly focus on the needs of the users of furniture. His designs are solid and strong and he always used materials that will Stand the test of time. Mangiarotti was very precise in using the right material and the right sizing for his designs.

About Angelo Mangiarotti (Designer)

Italian architect, designer, teacher and urban planner Angelo Mangiarotti (1921–2012) was a leading light in the international design community from the 1960s onward. While he was an adherent of the rationalist principles of purity of line and simplicity of construction, he sought to imbue his designs with a sense of character and lightness of spirit that was often lacking in late-20th-century modernist architecture and design. 


Born in Milan, Mangiarotti studied architecture at Milan Polytechnic, graduating in 1948. Five years later, he won a visiting professorship at the Illinois Institute of Technology — beginning a peripatetic academic career that would see him teaching in numerous Italian institutions as well as in schools as far afield as Hawaii and Australia. He worked with Bauhaus eminences Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and met such greats as Frank Lloyd Wright and Walter Gropius. He returned to Italy in 1955 and would go on to work on numerous industrial, residential, commercial and civic projects in his home country, most notably a group of six railway stations in Milan.


As a designer, Mangiarotti and the development of his career embodies the evolution of modernism in the latter decades of the20th century. In the late 1950s and early ’60s, after early experiments in plywood furniture and one-piece foam-core seating — including the 1110 lounge chair for Cassina — Mangiarotti began to design using more classic materials, from delicate, curvaceous blown-glass lamps for Artemide to chandeliers with crystal links for Vistosi. In 1971, Mangiarotti introduced what became his signature designs: a series of tables in marble and other stones that featured “gravity joints,” their legs held in place by the weight of the tabletop. Tables in his Eros collection (1971) have muscular proportions that anticipate the robust, overscaled lines of postmodern works that would appear 10 years later: His Eccentrico table, for example, is a striking assemblage in marble featuring a top that is cantilevered dramatically on a canted columnar base. 


But simplicity and practicality were consistently the primary watchwords of Mangiarotti’s designs. The purity and elegance of the objects he created offer a graceful counterpoint to a traditional decor, yet they have a singular sculptural presence that allows them to stand out powerfully in a modern interior.
