iSaloni 2015 preview: sculptural dining table Ellipse designed by Studio Front for Porro

On tiptoe, and with the discretion which has characterized it from the beginning, Porro arrives at its important 90 year milestone faithful to its unusual recipe for living, its unique mix of minimalism and experimentation. The Ellipse table, created by the Swedish designers studio, Front, is the clearest example. We will see at the Salone del Mobile 2015.

On the one hand are hyper-accurate systems in which every centimeter is carefully calculated, the thicknesses reduced to a minimum and the materials precious, to design architectural spaces of the highest quality which are always different as the result of a sartorial approach to choices among a particularly wide range of finishes, and on the other hand special objects which condense all their characteristics on a small scale, releasing energy, technical expertise and creativity. The perfect place to unplug and rest, the Porro home is a series of elegant spaces with an open and welcoming spirit, punctuated by furnishings that illuminate them in contrast like a wunderkammer conceived to surprise, like a fine work of art. The creative understanding of the company continues with the Front, the Swedish designers who have become the spokeswomen for a personal and free approach to design, drawing upon different worlds and mixing up their inspirations. The Ellipse table is indeed a sculpture born of the encounter between two volumes: the surface and base are two regular ellipses balanced on each other which experiment with a daring support on curved surfaces.

Ellipse Table has a delicate yet majestic design which pays homage to the regular oval, a shape of great appeal with innate grace. From a functional point of view, it’s a table with a unique, powerful design, conceived in a proportion which can fit into any home and is able to accommodate from 6 to 8 diners comfortably. Unique and functional in the dining room, it can at the same time be a table of great character and sculptural proportions for exterior use, a unique, highly versatile piece for indoor or outdoor spaces.
