Cicognino Small Table
The Cicognino small table was designed by reducing the frame to its essentials: the three slender legs, a table-top 15 ¾ inches in diameter, and a wooden trim that makes it reminiscent of a tray. Available in four finishes: American walnut, amaranth stained ashwood, and natural or black stained ashwood. The latter two options are available for Quick Ship.
One of the three legs extends higher than the others, ending as a handle that can be used for moving the table about. Meantime, the table-top serves as a link between the other parts, augmenting the overall sense of balance and stability.
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.
