Description

The Cavalletto table was presented for the first time in 1948 in Milan for the exhibition The style of modern furniture organized by Fede Cheti. In this version, however, the characteristic bracing in brass rods appears inverted compared to the final version. Reported to the Compasso d’oro, this table has the main feature of looking like a temporary object, which can be dismantled and quickly folded up, almost as a setting. The elegance of the profiles and details of the definitive version of 1950, produced by the Poggi company, highlights once again how subtle the border was between the language of lightness and the way of making arrangements, with scrupulousness and technical and formal attention by Franco Albini for the development of a design object. The final structure was in solid ash or rosewood, with a steel bracing; the shelf was sometimes provided with a woolen cloth cover.
