Constantin Side Table
Constantin side table by Studio Simon for Cassina pays homage to the work of Constantin Brancusi. The table features a waxed oak base and a thin round top made of brass. These two elements work perfectly together to connote the same feeling of movement and continuity as Brancusi’s sculptures.
Dino Gavina began his career in the 40's working on stage sets, a great passion of his. He was convinced that design needed to be both modern and richly poetic, and soon began to gain support from many of the country's leading designers and architects: "fathers of the country", as he jokingly refers to them, including Carlo Scarpa, Enzo Mari, Marcel Breuer, to name but a few.
His work in those years was an important starting point for what then came to be known as Italian Style, and has since come to stand for top quality, giving Italian design the prestigious reputation that it still known for today throughout the whole world.
