Dining Room Tables --- Bonaldo Italian Contemporary Modern BIG Dining Table


Bonaldo Big Table by Alain Gilles.  The 'Big Table' was designed by Belgian designer Alain Gilles for Bonaldo in Italy.  This exceptionally beautiful dining table received the coveted 'Good Design Award' because of its highly original and very attractive sculptural composition.  Big Table is a large, functional table which, although created in traditional materials like steel, wood and glass, is characterised by extremely original design, so much so that the perception of the product changes depending on the angle from which it is viewed.  The legs of the Big Table are laser-cut steel plates and each one has a different width that highlights the different shades and nuances.  




The Bonaldo Big Table is available in four matte-painted colour versions: with white legs, multicolored (coral red, orange, green and lilac), in a combination of browns and greys (powder pink, brown, dove grey and amaranth) and anthracite grey. The rectangular table top can be fixed or extendable. In the extendable version, the top and extensions are made from a single piece of black walnut veneer in order to ensure continuity in the wood grain between the parts.  The fixed version, which can also be made to measure, is available in glass (acid-treated black or extra-light acid treated white), solid wood (american walnut, natural polished oak, anthracite grey polished oak), ceramic (white or anthracite grey), walnut veneered wood or matte lacquered white.  A great fit in both classical, transitional and contemporary interiors.  The Bonaldo Big Table is available from Stardust with Free Shipping and a Low Price Guarantee.  Custom made to order and imported from Italy. 






Alain Gilles created the Big Table for Bonaldo in Italy.  Brussels furniture designer Alain Gilles was recently awarded with 'designer of the year' at Interieur in Belgium.  Alain Gilles’s designs are solid and relevant, and show his industrial responsibility.  At the same time, they show a poetic side.  After studying Political Sciences and Marketing Management, Alain Gilles went back to studying Industrial design in France. He assisted Xavier Lust in his creations, but was eventually hired by Quinze & Milan before graduating, where he worked for two and a half years. He opened is own studio in 2007 in order to pursue his own dreams and develop his personal approach to product design, furniture design, and interior architecture. Alain Gilles was named Designer of the Year 2012.
