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. This table is in great condition; minimal traces of use are visible on the top.
