the aperitivo table.
when in milano, do as the milanese do: have a blue hour drink. we’ve understood these tables were produced by cassina in the fifties for a cafe bar in milan. they are heavy and solid with their cast-iron legs and the central turned wooden column – but also elegant with the rather thin floating tabletop, covered with formica laminate in a fantastic blue colour.
cassina, founded by cesare and umberto cassina 1927 in meda, italy, is a famous furniture company until today, specialised in high end designer furniture. with the „cassina i maestri“ (cassina masters) collection they have the rights to products designed by le corbusier, pierre jeanneret, charlotte perriand and many more designers.
