The work of a design legend, this original early ‘Eros’ table by Angelo Mangiarotti was produced by his own design production company, Skipper, from 1971. This specimen was purchased in 1979 at Artes Studio, Lane Cove, Sydney and has moved with it’s owner for nearly 40 years.

It is constructed solely of Dark Emperador marble - the most expensive option available. Mangiarotti’s brilliantly conceived ‘gravity joint’ holds it together. Four frustoconical legs are precision crafted to intersect with the table top, employing it’s weight to lock the legs into place. Two disciplined forms - the cone and the square - become an organic and sumptuous whole. The square’s edge is softened by the curve of the legs. The gravity joint is an integral part of the table’s appearance, providing the intricate puzzle-lock pattern at the corners.

A thing of wonder for the serious collector. Originals are extremely hard to come by in Australia.
