The base of Curling table is carved from a single block of
Carrara or black Marquinia marble, resulting in the simplest and
purest of forms. A metal cylinder sits on top of the marble base
to support the table top, in ultra-clear transparent glass,
creating a truly sleek overall effect. Ultimately, Curling is
defined by its instinctive, immediate design, its bold character
and its imposing scenic presence.“As Michelangelo once said,
the sculpture is already inside the marble – all you need to do is
remove the superfluous,” says Lipparini, explaining the concept
behind this table for Bonaldo. “The idea for Curling came from
visits to the Carrara marble quarries. I was inspired by these
white, cubic blocks of marble.”
