This monumental table by Milanese architect Mario Bellini for Cassina is made purely from solid Nero Marquina marble. The square top with a reversed step edge profile rests elegantly on four cylindrical columns that can be placed randomly. For the ‘Il Colonnato’ dining table Bellini was inspired by ancient Roman columns.
