The Sorrento project came from a request for a table that would meet the needs of Chinese customers, who traditionally prefer a round table. In particular, there was a request for a large table to comfortably accommodate eight diners. In addition, a rotating disc was requested for the centre of the table from which, according to Chinese custom, the dishes are shared.
Designer: Marina Bani, Marco Penati
We wanted to underline this function by creating a contrast of materials between the top, in 4-sector inlaid wood with grain pattern, and the rotating Lazy-Susy disc in stone or marble.
For situations with less space, there is a smaller diameter version without the Lazy-Susy.
The Sorrento has an ultralight steel base, with a design that makes it extremely stable, therefore ensuring that the large size and the stone disc in the centre do not affect stability.
The legs can be upholstered in leather.
