The bulky look created by the solid sculptural masses of the semi-circular legs of Wedge contrasts with the lightweight feet, which culminate in an oblique chisel tip shape.
The entire volume of the table, hosting the large top, appears to become weightless and leans lightly on the tips of the legs, challenging the law of gravity.
The top comes in three different shapes - round, rectangular or barrel-shaped - with the four slightly curved sides and the option of choosing from bronzed glass, Moka-coloured ash wood or marble, in the Calacatta, Stone Grey and Nero Marquina colours.
The bases, in Malt-coloured satin metal or polished steel - the latter clearly inspired by the Seventies - can be matched with the marble and wood tops. The base is also available in a Moka-coloured wenge wood finish only when combined with the top in bronzed glass.
