POE TABLE SYSTEM
Tables are among the products distinguishing Bartoli Design’s development and design.
Centerpieces of conviviality, significant elements in terms of aestethics and space layout, they are likely to be a major presence in homes and that’s why the studio devotes an intensive research to this topic. The latest outcome is the Poe table family, designed for Laurameroni.
The aim of architects Anna and Paolo Bartoli once again is to improve the performance, explore materials and look at the future in terms of durability.
As Paolo Bartoli explains: ‘We are continuously researching on which materials are to be chosen for new designs and how to use them for the best performance and aesthetic solutions: for the Poe tables we chose marble, wood and black rye straw marquetry; we want to create timeless, forever valid products, so the use of noble and authentic materials is crucial’. That’s how a refined model was born: contemporary in its flair and character, reflecting Bartoli Design’s language and Laurameroni’s soul.
The Poe table system is defined by inlayed tops with rounded edge – in marble, wood or with a shiny lacquer – and by ovoidal legs in plain or shiny-lacquered or metal-lacquered wood, else finished with an artisanal black rye straw inlay.
Two elements, top and legs, both characterizing and unique to the project, are in aesthetic and formal balance with each other. Visually light even on large tables, the legs have an elementary and thinned shape allowing multiple configurations, to support circular, oval, rectangular, square or made-to-measure tops or custom-designed solutions.
“The twenty-year collaboration with Laurameroni and the aesthetic sensitivity we share with the company” says Anna Bartoli “allows us to express and deepen values which are important to us, such as the research on materials expressed by their workings, the fusion of tradition and contemporaneity, all elements that are also expressed in the new Poe system”.
