Tango, the marble table makes the Brera botanical garden fall in love
“One may think, ‘It’s as heavy as stone’…’Let’s just put a stone on it’…But it’s not so! This table, cut and worked with water jet machine from a block of Carrara marble seems to be emerging from the earth with the power of its design. Almost like dancing a tang o dance figure…”
These words belong to famous milan architect and designer, Mario Bellini, who has a long career of successes, projects and awards. Such as: 8 times Compasso d’Oro Award, Gold Medal for Lifetime Achievement from Triennale Milano, 25 of his works are permanently visible at MoMA collection in New York. In addition, he was Domus magazine director, designing numerous art and architecture exhibitions in Italy and abroad.
