CICLADI By edra
Alabaster coffee table
Cicladi is a set of low tables with alabaster top and irregular and jagged edges, available in different heights and colors.
The tops are cut by the crude “egg” of the evaporate mineral. The cone-shaped metal base is available in different heights and colors.
Seen from above, they resemble islands.
The ever-changing veins, facets and dimensions of the alabaster make each of these tables a unique piece.
The tables are available in addition to natural white also in black, malachite green, amber, Pompei red and lapis lazuli blue.
The metal conical base is available in three color versions, gold, palladium or ruthenium.
The Tuscan alabaster from the Volterra area was used already in ancient times in Etruria in paleochristian basilicas instead of glass.
Later, it was discovered by Florentine sculptors and artisans who preferred it to create precious decorative objects, but in the Middle Ages it was almost completely forgotten, and then rediscovered by the artists during the Renaissance.
