Set of Three Aldo Tura Parchment Nesting Tables

About

Set of three Aldo Tura nesting tables in lacquered goatskin and mahogany. This particular set was executed, circa 1960 in a somewhat austere style, but - as strong contrast - is covered with a rich brown tanned parchment. Dimensions: Height: 16.1 in. (41 cm), 14.9 in. (38 cm) and 13.7 inches (35 cm). Width: 19.6 in. (50 cm), 16.1 in. (41 cm) and 12.6 inches (32 cm). Depth: 11.8 in. (30 cm), 11.0 in. (28 cm) and 10.2 inches (26 cm). Good condition, some minor scratches (see last pictures). Along with artists like Piero Fornasetti and Carlo Bugatti, Aldo Tura (1909-1963) definitely belonged to the mavericks of Italian design. Whereas the former chose abundant figurative decorations as his hallmark, Bugatti and Tura focussed on applying a specific material. Tura founded his workshop in Milan in 1939 and the company has been in operation ever since. Though over the years Tura realized pieces in a number of different styles, they are all handmade, executed to very high standard and covered with one specific material: parchment.
