A minimal shape, made precious by the materials used, characterises the Clive family, a story told through a series of console tables, side tables and benches. The tallest version, 60 cm in height, is the Clive console table to be placed behind the couch, whereas the 39 cm tall version makes the Clive side table an ideal surface positioned level with the sofa.
The two heights can also be combined, creating an elegant overlay effect. Clive rests on the ground on two satin aluminium blades in Malt colour that support its square top with rounded corners.
The top, available in three versions - Zebrino marble, Black back-painted glass or Moka lacquered brushed wenge - is embraced by a band of satin metal in Malt colour, framing it like a crown. A stylish detail that reminds us of the attention to decorative value assigned by the savoir-faire of master craftsmen. The Clive family is completed by a series of benches with padded seats, upholstered in leather or fabric, enhanced by an array of seams that underscore its fine sartorial quality.
