This table is a rare find and a versatile addition to any dining space. Matching arm chairs not included, available in this listing.


The ‘Artona’ line, crafted by the Scarpa duo, holds historical significance as it marked the beginning of Maxalto, a specialized branch of B&B Italia. Maxalto, founded in 1975, was dedicated to crafting artisanal, predominantly wooden furniture. The ‘Artona’ series was their first project for Maxalto and also served as a counterpoint to the prevailing trend of using plastics in furniture design during the postwar era.


The brand’s research into form looks to the past, with a revisitation of classical styles. Afra and Tobia Scarpa were its first interpreters, designing a series of wooden furniture items through the use of rare, ancient production processes typical of cabinet and lute making. The result was extremely striking in its sculptural effect, as epitomised by the Africa chair (Artona collection) and the New Harmony collection.
