El Dom Table
The striking lines of El Dom table by Hannes Wettstein for Cassina create an elegant profile. The legs fit directly into the top, and so the wider the legs, the slimmer their profile. The stability of the frame is provided by an internal anchorage mechanism set in the two sides and the top. This table is available in natural or dark-stained oak or in santos rosewood with matte grey stained aluminum feet. It is offered in three sizes, can accommodate up to twelve guests. The El Dom table is designed to bring people, places and ideas together.
