Boboli Table

for  Cassina

or Call to Order

The Boboli table designed by Rodolfo Dordoni for Cassina is char­ac­ter­ized by its geomet­ri­cally ordered lines. The struc­tural chal­lenge was to ensure the stabil­ity of the slim-line twisted uprights that form the base. These uprights, both load-bearing and deco­ra­tive, pay homage to the canons of the clas­si­cal Italian garden, where plants were often trained verti­cally. The sinuous form of these aluminum legs confer a sculp­tural look to the design, where rigor and imag­i­na­tion come together to chal­lenge the limits and the very nature of the mate­r­ial from which they are made. 

Cassina presented the latest iter­a­tion of the Boboli table in 2016, further improv­ing its stabil­ity and resis­tance by fixing the table-top to the base. The painted aluminum base is avail­able in matte black, gold chrome and gunmetal. A new version with 200 cm diam­e­ter and optional Lazy Susan is also available.

Rodolfo Dordoni

Italy (1954)

As a designer, Rodolfo Dordoni has created a career of collaboration, through designing furniture and objects for the home with a wide array of companies. Born in Milan in 1954, Dordoni graduated with a degree in architecture from Milan Polytechnic. He soon began designing for Artemide, working on their glass collection; eventually becoming their art director. Dordoni then transitioned to working for Cappellini from 1979 - 1989. He has since created lines for or work directly with Cassina, Minotti, Flos, Dornbracht, Fontana Arte, Moroso, Roda, and Venini. In 2005 he created his own architecture firm, Dordoni Archietti, which focuses on architectural planning, interior design, and exhibit design. His work is often considered to be simple and intuitive; much of his design process goes beyond the object itself and focuses on the marketing campaign that will feature the piece or line.
