Minimo table, design by Piero Lissoni for Porro is available in two versions: natural or black stained hemlock.
Piero Lissoni takes his own iconic minimalism to the extreme by introducing Japanese elements in the Minimo table.
Solidity and equilibrium come together in a surprisingly graceful composition carved out of sharp angles, oblique lines and solid wood. Indeed composition is the crucial element in this elegant and attractive table. The horizontal hemlock solid wood beam lies on four solid wood slanted legs. These are geometric elements that poetically correct the rigid horizontal nature of the table. The legs serve, of course a much more tangible function by giving stability and solidity to the table as a whole, making it a very functional unit.
Lissoni's long history with Porro has produced a wide variety of products. Yet, there is always a simple elegance to this iconic designer. In fact, the importance of Lissoni's work in the world of furniture design largely lies in his eclectic approach to elegance and minimalism.
It should be no surprise that Lissoni has designed so extensively for Porro. The renowned Italian manufacturer is known for its simple, functional, and beautiful lines. The Minimo table is just another example of how fruitful collaboration between like-minded designers and manufacturers can be.
Minimo is also available as Minimo Light with honeycomb top.
