In Depth

This time the focus of attention is a table designed for the Agnelli home in Rome: Manzù imagined a tabletop mounted on central support secured to the floor. With the slenderness typical of Eero Saarinen’s designs and the resourcefulness of Pierre Chareau, he styled a base with a sculptural quality that supports a round top, with a central part turning relative to the outer crown where people sit at, so as to provide more effective service to each. The table with a central leg by Pio Manzù is the result of a profile rotating around a central axis. The archive drawings show how the profile was designed according to different geometric profiles, which generated a series of shapes with different tensions.
