Carlo Scarpa “Samo” Oval Table for Simon Gavina, Granite, 1971

Description

Carlo Scarpa “Samo” oval table for Simon Gavina, granite, Italy, 1971.

The Scarpa’s way of thinking the architecture is evident in this piece. The “Samo” dining table designed in 1971 for the “Ultrarazionale” collection by Simon Gavina consists of two grooved solid granite pillars and a single floating oval granite tabletop. The table explicitly shows stable architectural features in the pillared base. The concrete oval granite top is an example of gravity-based techniques as the weight of the oval granite balances perfectly on the pedestal base.
