Marble "Metaphora" Coffee Table by Massimo and Leila Vignelli


"Metaphora" cocktail table by Leila and Massimo Vignell for Martinelli Luce. Made in Italy, circa 1979. This table combined out of four primary shapes a cube, a cylinder a ball and a pyramid. All of these made in four different marble types; a pyramid in white Carrara marble, a cube in black Marquinia marble, a cylinder in Travertine and a sphere in Rasotica marble. The four forms of the Euclidean geometry, the cube, the cylinder, the sphere and the pyramid, made of four different marbles, represent the basis of the table finished with a big sheet of transparent glass. The four elements are independent and can be positioned freely, without the table losing its own identity regardless the position of the elements it consists of, being them all necessary however to make it be stable.
