Emil side table, Zanotta 2014

Emil is a lightweight and versatile metal table designed with slender surfaces and legs braced with thin steel wires that loop around each other to form a sturdy frame. The high-gloss lacquered and polished table-top is only 3 mm thick and appears to float upon its supporting wire base. 

Material and Color
Metal version in high gloss black, white, burgundy or soft pink/white; wooden version with a base in polished copper or brass combined with a solid walnut or oak table top

W 41 × D 34 × H 50 cm

Zanotta later asked me to explore new materials and colors for the side tables. Together we envisioned a solid wood top in contrast with a bright copper or brass base.

The tapered wooden edges of the table top emphasize lightness whilst the softer underside allows for an enjoyable touch.
