The Spello table by Flexform
Spello is an outstanding table designed by Gabriele and Oscar Buratti for Flexform.
Boasting a strong, unmistakable personality, it consists of two sculptural bases in painted metal upon which the mighty overlaying top rests.
The designers have claimed in interviews that their source of inspiration is brutalism, an architectural and artistic movement known for its rugged, raw shapes and robust structures, examples of which are also present in Milan.
Contrasting the severity of the support base is the poetic texture of the solid wood top, played up by the design of the boards that echo the noble tradition of inlay work and by a subtle opening that runs along the length of the top.
Available only in rectangular version, the Spello table comes veneered in Canaletto walnut, ash or ebony, in a choice of stains. It is also available in a version with an array of marble top choices.
A perfect combination for this table is represented by the Crono armchairs designed by Antonio Citterio for Flexform, always available in a variety of finishes, and the solid structure in Canaletto walnut or ash, stained in various shades.
