Showing a strong personality through a game of balance, the Big Table leads the eye from one element to the next, from one colour to the other. Designed by Alain Gilles for Italian manufacturer Bonaldo, the design of the table features a series of colourful angled legs that look striking from any perspective.
As if it were walking, each foot stretches to reach further away. Whatever the angles, it always looks strikingly different from one point of view to another, as if you could never really grab it.
Originally named as the “Big Foot Table”, the design uses a mix of traditional materials, such as steel and wood. The legs are build out of steel plates that have been laser cut and folded. Each leg has a different width, and has been cut and bent to reveal different tonalities of their own colour, in order to play with the shadows. The legs constantly change the perception of the product depending on the viewing angle, giving it a dynamic feel.
The tilt angle of the legs suggests dynamism, the linearity of the table top adds greater visual stability. Whether immobile or moving, Big Table really does have an unusual personality.
The legs of the Bit Table come in four different colour combinations: coral red / orange / green / lilac, powder pink / brown / dove-grey / amaranth, or completely in anthracite grey or white. The table top also comes in a variety of colours and finishes from natural woods, to lacquered matte white or glass. Bit Table can be ordered in the fixed or extending version.
