Streamlined like an aeroplane wing, the Odessa Dining Table by Ligne Roset seems to float on the twin arches of the steel base. The play of light across its surface only enhanced by the very slenderness of its form.
The Odessa Dining Table is thus a superb illustration of his natural minimalism of uncluttered forms which pays particular attention to “materials, colours, surfaces, fullness and slenderness, light and shade”. Handcrafted in France, the folded steel legs finish throw into relief all the natural beauty of the European walnut or ceramic table top.
Designer Mauro Lipparini’s style is often defined as ‘natural minimalism’. Based around uncluttered forms and vigorous lines, his style comes across as light, joyous, intoxicated with aesthetic and creative pleasure. “With simple, vigorous lines, graphic abstractions, my pursuit of beauty and pleasure continues with a marriage of form and function,” he says.
