Understated and refined, the Kyoto table by architect and designer Gianfranco Frattini is the perfect blend of design vision and master craftsmanship. In the early 70s, during a trip to Japan to study the work of the local craftsmen, Gianfranco Frattini visited the craft workshops of Kyoto together with expert carpenter Pierluigi Ghianda, who would become his friend and collaborator.
The Kyoto table forms part of the permanent collection of the Design Museum at the Milan Triennale.
The Kyoto table is available in the square 102 cm version with height of 32 cm, or in the 102x49 cm version, also 32 cm high. The surface and legs are in Extra light solid beech wood with solid Canaletto walnut inserts at the end of the boards that make up the top. The wooden boards are connected with 45° joints that form a square pattern. Slide-off counterpoise legs that can be positioned as desired.
All surfaces are treated with a protective transparent varnish.
The Poltrona Frau logo and the designer’s signature are laser engraved on one of the faces of the leg supports.
