MATRIX INTERNATIONAL . SINAPSI E INTRECCIO TABLES
Via San Damiano, 2
On the occasion of the 2016 edition of Salone Internazionale del Mobile, Matrix International presents two new projects designed by Paolo Portoghesi at the Galleria Fragile in Milan. The tables SINAPSI and INTRECCIO will become part of the 2016 collection of the Tuscan company, which hosts already some among the most renowned Italian and International designers’ projects.
INTRECCIO TABLE (Æ cm 120 – 137, H. cm 72) with cast iron base, birch legs and Calacatta marble or glass top (Ø cm 120-140), re-proposes the crisscrossed arches theme that Portoghesi used both designing the candlesticks for Officina Alessi in 1988 and the prayer hall of the Great Mosque in Rome, built from 1975 to 1995.
SINAPSI TABLE (cm 85x225 H. cm 72) is an elegant variation on the table made of side frames connected by a rail. This typology spread after the rise of metal profiles and was made iconic by Le Corbusier, in 1928, with its “tube d’avion” table.
