The idea for this console table, designed by Ico Parisi in 1947 for a private client, stemmed from a few lines drawn on a sheet of paper: a horizontal line and two oblique lines to define a structure with almost perfect proportions and an organic appearance. Cassina has respected and enhanced the heart of this project by combining technology with craftsmanship, typical of the company’s carpentry workshop; the result is a refined solid wood console table embellished with metal details that adapts to all rooms in the home. Its rectangular plane has four straight notched recesses on the two longest sides, near the extremities, within which, like real joints, the tips of the characteristic divergent “Y” shape upper arms of the legs, available in ash or Canaletto walnut, are screwed and bound two by two to a shaped crossbar. Balance and strength are guaranteed by two oblique turned solid wood elements, joined diagonally to the crossbar and embedded in the structure below.

Cassina Group stands out for the production of chairs, tables, sofas, armchairs, beds and containers.
Cassina was one of the first Italian companies to focus on furniture research and innovation, collaborating with distinguished architects and designers to find new forms of design and thus beginning industrial design in Italy as early as the 1950s. Cassina has always had a very precise identity between technology and craftsmanship with a long tradition.
Cassina furniture and sofas are in fact always the result of the carpentry workshop, which has enhanced its value all over the world.
