Carati by Mario Alessiani
Carati is a minimalist design created by Italy-based designer Mario Alessiani. The project is a collection of side tables inspired by the way diamonds are mounted on rings. Made of wood and iron, the plane is supported by the metal structure that contains the wood surface like a precious stone. The tables are entirely hand made in Italy. The main idea was to create an atypical relationship between the legs and the plane of the table, where the structure is supported by an horizontal pressure in stead of a vertical one of common tables.
