or Call to Order

Franco Albini’s TL3 table is a classic, elegant Italian midcen­tury design that features a base struc­ture with four gently atten­u­ated legs that are cross-braced with wood supports that sport visible black metal joints. The cross-braces not only provide the neces­sary support to allow for the slender legs but, with the addi­tion of an inte­grated trun­cated conical spacer atop each leg, elevate the top allow­ing space to pass through its under­side. This simple, very clever design element engen­ders remark­able levity to the table’s form. Simi­larly, the artic­u­lated black joints become visu­ally-engag­ing decorative punctuation.

The TL3 table base is avail­able in two versions – recti­lin­ear and square – each corre­sponds with the shape and size of the desired top – recti­lin­ear, square, or round. Bases are avail­able in three finishes – Amer­i­can walnut, natural ash, and black-stained ash. Tops are avail­able in .6” thick clear glass for all five versions of the TL3 table. Wood tops that match the base are also avail­able as an option for the two recti­lin­ear sizes as well as the medium square version.

Franco Albini

Italy (1905–1977)

Born in Milan in 1905, Franco Albini's work spans across furniture design, product design, architecture, urban planning and interior design. His work was an integration of modern design and Italian craftsmanship. Through his product and furniture design, Albini celebrated the raw form of materials and transparent construction. Albini would forgo ornament and encasement of furniture, to allow the structure to be revealed. In 1939, he debuted a radio fully encased in glass to expose the inner workings. His most well-known work is the Albini Desk in 1949 for Knoll, which is still in production today. As a designer, he has collaborated with Gio Ponti, Franca Helg, as well as Helg and Bob Noorda.
