Gae Aulenti, 1980
An industrial trolley used at the FontanaArte plant to transport glass: this was the object that inspired Gae Aulenti to design her Tavolo con Ruote. It is a specimen of intuitive design that skips the drawing board stage and goes straight from the idea of an everyday item to the prototype stage. This wheeled table replaces the factory trolleyï¾’s wooden shelf with a chunky sheet of beveled glass ï¾– a tribute to the companyï¾’s production history ï¾– and fits free-rolling industrial wheels. The nature of the object and its intended use are transformed by replacing just one simple part.
Coffee table with ground float-glass top. Industrial wheels with painted metal brackets.
