Allure O’ Table
for B&B Italia
The Allure O’ dining table by Monica Armani is a heart-felt tribute to glamour. In an interplay of elliptical geometric shapes, designed by Monica Armani in 2017, this piece references the shape of Jackie O’s iconic eyeglasses. The grace its design is clearly seen in the balance between the straight lines and the sinuosity of the curves. Allure O’ is available with a square or rectangular top, both with beveled edges, and each comes in two sizes to seat four, six, or eight people. The section of the truncated pyramid base replicates the rigorous balance of the top with delicate proportions to create a level of harmony. The finishes underscore the sophisticated elegance of the inspiring concept behind it.
These pieces are available in glossy and matte painted finishes in many colors, and in light and black oak wood. The top and base can also be finished in combinations of different colors. Furthermore, the table can be enhanced with an upper marble top or with sophisticated glossy black glass.
BBItalia The Collection
Architect and designer Monica Armani was born In Trento. She currently divides her time between Trento and Milan. She began her professional career working with her father, rationalist architect Marcello Armani, who passed on to her a passion for designing and planning, an attention to detail, and an enthusiasm for exploring new ideas. In 1996, together with Luca Dallabetta, she began to create a very successful line of products: Progetto 1, which was characterized by simple and innovative design and which established Monica Armani as a trademark in the world of contemporary design. In her projects, formal aesthetics, innovation and engineering give life to a unique and recognizable style, characterized by a continuous connection between industrial design, architecture and interior decoration: a combination that produces an unexpected use of space, with innovative and specific technical solutions from the Lights to the façade, from internal divisions to plant-design solutions. The rigor of geometry always inspires my projects, together with the need to free space from the burden of symbols. “Less Is more”, one of Mies van der Rohe’s maxims, is how I identify myself. I believe that the work of cleaning a project, the “matching of details,” or the search for a balance of all its aspects, is an essential step for creating “spaces” that are contemporary and at the same time timeless.
