Afra & Tobia Scarpa 'Africa' Dining Table

About

Afra & Tobia Scarpa from Maxalto, dining table from the Africa series, burl, walnut, ebony, Italy, 1975. This table is by Afra & Tobia Scarpa and is titled 'Africa' and is part of the Artona collection by Maxalto. The table is designed with a round top based on the well known construction technique using blocks of briar framed by walnut and ebony. The base is square and this provides a solid but quaint base to the round top. The black lines in the piece are accompanied by sophisticated details and various colors. The Artona line by the Scarpa duo was in fact first line every produced by Maxalto, the specialist division of B&B Italia. Maxalto was originally set up in 1975 as a high-end division of B&B Italia to focus exclusively on the production of artisanal, mostly wood furniture. The Artona was their first project and also functions as a counter-message against the common prevailing use of plastics in furniture design during the postwar period. Literature: - Gramigna, Giuliana. Repertorio del Design Italiano 1950-2000 per L'Arredamento Domestico. Allemandi: Torino, 2003, p. 232. - Antonio Piva Afra e Tobia Scarpa: Architetti e Designers, p. 146. Afra (1937-2011) & Tobia (1935-) Scarpa both studied on the Venice Institute of Architecture.

Tobia & Afra designed for numerous major Italian and international companies like Flos, Gavina, B&B Italia, Cassina, Knoll International and many interior projects for numerous companies worldwide.
