Description

Tavolo con Ruote, designed by Gae Aulenti for FontanaArte in 1980, is a coffee table that plays with industrial aesthetics and modern minimalism. Aulenti got the idea for the table from industrial trolleys used at FontanaArte’s factory to transport glass – she replaced the trolley’s wooden shelf with a thick sheet of glass and combined it with large, free-rolling industrial wheels. Tavolo con Ruote is perfect for spaces where you need to move the coffee table every now and then, and its simple, straightforward design makes a charming addition to all types of interiors.

Gae Aulenti

Gae Aulenti (1927-2012) was a notable Italian architect whose work includes industrial design, furniture, lighting, graphics, stage design and interior design. One of her best-known projects was the new layout for the Musée d‘Orsay, a former railway station in Paris. Aulenti graduated from the Milan Polytechnic in 1953 and during her career, she also worked as an art director at the Casabella-Continuità magazine, a lecturer of architecture in various universities and the vice-president of the Italian Association Of Industrial Design (ADI). In 2012, she received the career prize at the Milan Triennale. She has also received the prestigious Japanese Praemium Imperiale award, the knighthood of the French Legion of Honour, and the Honorary Fellowship of the American Institute of Architects.
