Unusual shaped dining table called Longobardo designed by Angelo Mangiarotti and manufactured by Skipper in Italy, 1970. The base is made of strong, dark gray textured metal which has a really nice shape, like it’s in blooming state. The base is made in one piece of solid metal, and it has five arms and legs that spread out. The top and bottom of the base are cut out in a special way, giving it a unique style. The top is a round glass surface giving it a smooth and cool look against the metal and gives the table an open character where the base is visible from all sides. The whole table breathes Mangiarotti’s love for architecture and rough materials. In very good original condition, can use up to 5/6 chairs. Chairs on the pictures are not included but can be purchased here.

 

Angelo Mangiarotti, born in Milan on February 26, 1921, was an accomplished architect and designer. He graduated in Architecture from Politecnico di Milano in 1948 and later spent time in the United States, where he had the privilege of meeting influential figures like Frank Lloyd Wright, Walter Gropius, Mies van der Rohe, and Konrad Wachsmann. Upon returning to Italy, he co-founded an architectural firm with Bruno Morassutti until 1960. In 1989, he established the Mangiarotti & Associates Office in Tokyo. His contributions also extended to the world of design, as he served as the Art Director of Colle Cristalleria from 1986 to 1992.

 

Mangiarotti’s expertise wasn’t limited to practice alone. He was a dedicated educator, sharing his knowledge at various universities in Italy and around the world. His design philosophy, outlined in his book “In nome dell’architettura” published in 1987, emphasized the importance of creating objects with essential characteristics, making them user-friendly and recognizable. His exceptional work earned him numerous awards in both design and architecture, including the prestigious Compasso d’oro ADI for his carrier in 1994. Angelo Mangiarotti’s legacy lives on, and he is remembered for his profound influence on the fields of architecture and design. He passed away in Milan on June 30, 2012.
