Stunning so called ‘II Colonnato’ dining table designed by Mario Bellini and manufactured by Cassina in Italy in 1977. It’s made from solid Persian travertine, which has a beautiful deep colour. The tabletop is exceptional, featuring different shades that make it look like a work of art on its own. This table has five legs that look like Roman pillars, giving it a classic touch. It’s quite big, so you can comfortably fit up to eight chairs around it for family get-togethers. The table is in excellent condition, despite its age.


The design has a classic feel, with the vertical supports having a slight curve, much like ancient columns. Mario Bellini got the idea for this table from classical architecture, where a sequence of columns supports a structure, in this case, a table. One interesting thing about this table is that it can look closed from one angle, but from a different view, it appears open. This creates a cool visual effect that keeps you intrigued. A forest of massive primordial columns.  Mario Bellini took his inspiration from a basic elemental structure in architecture. His design emulated the colonnade of classical architecture, in which a sequence of columns supports a portico, in this case a table top.
