Lightness combined with dynamic perception of suspension is the theme developed by the design of the new table system Axy.
A basic architecture in which the original design of the two structural bridges, entirely made of aluminium, recomposes the tensions and strength lines with expressive efficacy. A thin top completes the table, conveying an overall aerial impression underpinned by reassuring stability. Available in various configurations, including the extendable version, with a wide choice of materials and finishes Axy naturally adapts to a broad range of interpretations both for indoor and outdoor use, from the dining-table to the working desk.
