TAULA | Square table By Salvatori
The Taula table collection was inspired by the imposing monolithic structures of the same name that are found on the Mediterranean islands of Menorca and Mallorca. Designer Patricia Urquiola has reinterpreted their ancestral might and mysticism in a series of innovative dining tables that exalt the tactility of natural stone.
The soft sinuous forms of marble and limestone combine with an ingenious metal support system that creates the effect of a top that seems to float above the legs. This optical illusion, the result of meticulous research conducted by our team into form and perspective, defies our normal perception of stone as a solid, heavy material, making it appear unexpectedly light.
The result is a series of six striking and original dining tables, with rectangular variants in Crema d’Orcia, Pietra d’Avola and a combination of Bianco Carrara with legs in sandblasted Pietra d’Avola, and in a square shape in Bianco Carrara, Gris du Marais® and Bianco Carrara paired with sandblasted Verde Alpi.
This dining tables have been treated with a neutral sealer which not only helps protects it from staining, but also ensures it is suitable for use with food.
Please be aware however, that natural stone will always retain some level of absorption and therefore products with a high acid, fat or oil content should never be placed on it.
Any liquids should be wiped off as quickly as possible.
