The Clay table designed by Marc Krusin for Desalto is a perfect blend of beauty, proportions, and harmony, an object with a pure aesthetics capable of defining any space. The Clay table is a sculpture born from the encounter between two volumes: the top and the base balanced one on the other, a daring experiment in resting on a section reduced to a minimum. The table tops and rigid polyurethane base are available in white, black or brown lacquer as well as special stone, metal or marble finishes spread by hand. The top is also available in toughened 8 mm glass white, graphite, or bungee brown and 6 mm ceramic in the following colors: white calce, asphalt cement, desert or lava as well as marble in Etna natural, graphite grey or Calcutta.
Marc Krusin began his career in Italy where he worked tirelessly at the heart of the Milanese design scene for more than 13 years. He became Piero Lissoni’s right-hand-man and associate, leading all types of projects from product to interior design for clients of international reputation. He now has his practice in London and continues to design spaces and products for clients around the world. In addition to designing, Marc has taught and lectured at universities in Europe and Australia and regularly speaks about his experience at events and conferences. “My intention is always to create visual silence, to create objects which are unobtrusive and which harmonize with their surroundings rather than shout for attention. One thing that has dramatically changed the way I work is simple awareness. Awareness of what is being asked and of what is needed, and the realization that wonderful things can happen when we stop thinking!”
