Renzo Piana Architect Glass Dining Table for FontanaArte





Fontanaarte 2736/13 Teso Round Table by Renzo Piano. This beautiful all-glass round dining table was designed by notable Pritzker price-winning architect Renzo Piano for FontanaArte in Italy. This exquisite glass table is a favorite among our customers who appreciate its clean lines and timeless design features. The Teso dining table has a layered (.98" thick) floated glass table top. It's all-glass legs are made with layered glass sheets (.59" thick), grooved to contain burnished metal ties. Thanks to its high glass-compression coefficient, tension makes the table a one-piece structure. This ultra-modern contemporary glass dining table with its transparent glass structure gives the design a visual lightness and timeless sophistication. A classic icon of modern design by the Italian master of modern architecture. Renzo Piano is an Italian Pritzker Prize-winning architect. Architecture critic Nicolai Ouroussoff has said of Renzo Piano's works that the "...serenity of his best buildings can almost make you believe that we live in a civilized world." Creating space for the display of works of art has intrigued Renzo Piano throughout his thirty-five years of architectural practice. Today he is acknowledged the pre-eminent designer in this field, entrusted with the collections of the most distinguished art institutions in the world. His creations for FontanaArte are a natural extension of his architectural masterpieces. Each of them exhibit a refreshingly brilliant structural clarity and composition. Made by FontanaArte in Italy.
