Angelo Mangiarotti “Trifoglio” Coffee Table for Skipper, 1971

Description

Angelo Mangiarotti “Trifoglio” coffee table for Skipper, black Marquinia marble, Italy, 1971.

This “Trifoglio” sculptural coffee table is a great example of postmodern design. Designed like a shamrock (here’s the Italian “Trifoglio”), this table features no joints or clamps and is architectural in its structure. The table rests on three cone-shaped legs, and the construction is gravity-based. The top ‘locks’ itself onto the marble cones placed on the corners and kept in place as a result of the weight of the material. As a consequence, the entire structure is stable and strong.
