About the DesignerFerrucio Laviani
Ferrucio Laviani is part of a generation of young Italian designers who came to prominence in the early 90's when the Memphis movement made its mark on international design. Born in 1960, Laviani studied both architecture and design in Milan, graduating with a degree in architecture in 1986. Soon thereafter, he took part in the "12 Newcomers" Memphis collection in 1986 and the "Living on Earth" Memphis collection in 1987, launching his career with ties to the colorful and idiosyncratic design movement.
Laviani went on to design whimsical, colorful furniture and objects that remind us of their exuberant and expressive mission. Laviani's Orbital Lamp of 1991, perhaps his best known design, used color-saturated biomorphic shapes for the glass shades, and an angular, tapering metal base, bringing to mind the organic emphasis and optimism of the '50s, while his Max table combines multi-use practicality with his signature curvilinear forms.
Ferruccio Laviani marks the transition between his generation and those before him through his collaborations with his elders and mentors. He's worked with Kartell, Foscarini, Achille Castiglioni, and Ettore Sottsass. Along with his talented colleagues, Laviani exemplifies the best of Italian design, present and future.
The streamlined and professional design of the Four Deluxe Table makes it an ideal table for business and office environments. This version, more sophisticated in its use of component materials than the Four Classic Table, is able to reach an absolute pinnacle of elegance. Slim and polished, the satined aluminum tabletop easily allows for the positioning of drawers or storage units for computers. The legs, made varnished steel, are angled in perpendicular lines to add depth to the geometric lines of the table. Side by side, these tables form office work stations. In addition to office settings, the Four Deluxe Table, available with four top options and in two color schemes, functions well as a sleek dining table. Designed by:
