Ventaglio Table

By Cassina


  • Description

    The Ventaglio Table features a top composed of fourteen thick, rectilinear staved oak planks of equal widths that have been cut and arranged to create a complex polyhedric surface – the resulting shape delineates areas at the table allowing use for a small group to share a meal or activity or a large group to use the entire expanse of the table.

    Ventaglio Table is supported by three legs that are positioned at interesting angles on the underside – their gently undulating form is a perfect vertical foil to the top's massive horizontal plane. Ventaglio Table is perfect to use as a dining table; similarly wonderful to use as a large sculptural desk.

    Charlotte Perriand's daughter, Pernette, said that her mother believed "that she did not make furniture but re-created volumes" – this sentiment is absolutely evident in Ventaglio that was originally designed for her chalet in Meribel, France.

    Charlotte Perriand

    Charlotte Perriand (1903 - 1999), was a French architect and designer.

    Perriand became known at 24 years of age with Bar Under the Roof - furniture made out of chromed steel and anodized aluminium. This was presented at the Salon d'Automne of 1927 and was acclaimed by the critics. Shortly afterward, she was invited to begin a collaboration with Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret, which would last nearly ten years. She exhibited with them in the Salon d'Automne of 1929, The Equipment of Habitation: Racks, Seats, Tables . This furniture would be produced by Thonet and more recently by Cassina.

    From 1940, onwards, her style was strongly influenced by a long stay in the Far East, and in particular in Japan from 1940 to 1942. Charlotte Perriand took part in the design of the ski resorts of Les Arcs in Savoie, at the same time making her architecture and installations of interiors. Since March 2004, Cassina produces the furniture of Charlotte Perriand.
