Carlo Scarpa & Marcel Breuer 'Delfi' Table in Marble


Carlo Scarpa and Marcel Breuer, dining table'Delfi', marble, by Italy 1970. Beautiful white colored marble table by Italian designer Carlo Scarpa. This center table is very stately. The legs with gradual lines remind of classical roman columns and are a modern and contemporary vision of the ancient architectural structure. The white marble holds some modest veins and is nicely light colored. Carlo Scarpa (1906-1978) is known as a virtuoso of light, a master of detail, and a connoisseur of materials. He is most well-known for his architectural projects, counting 58 in all. Most famous are the Castelvecchio Museum in Verona, the Olivetti showroom in Venice and the Brion Tomb in San Vito d’Altivole. His lush use of decorative aspects and crafted details are still unrivalled. His designs, including this Samo table shows very clear traits of Scarpa’s aesthetic language that holds the middle between Japanese minimalism and organic forms of nature. The table, being designed in 1970, shows strong architectural features in the pillared base. The solid oval marble top is an exquisite example of the use of gravity based techniques as the weight of the oval marble balances perfectly on the pedestal base. Literature: - Gramigna, Giuliana. Repertorio del Design Italiano 1950-2000 per L'Arredamento Domestico. Allemandi: Torino, 2003, p. 211.
