Designed in 1955, the design of this table – a piece of furniture considered by Ico Parisi to be a central element in the home – accompanies the Maestro’s career and evolves with different materials. The Olimpino table has a slender, bold and recognisable square section tubular metal frame made of two pairs of “Y” shaped uprights, whose upper inner arms converge to join under the top, while the outer arms diverge to block the rectangular plate of the top, in monolithic tempered glass, with a brass side stopper. The legs, thus paired, are strengthened with a double crossbar, also in metal, which opens near the sides and forms a double “V” shape. The solid wood arrow feet embellish the design, as do the large brass screws. The table is available in two sizes and one height.

Cassina is an Italian and international furniture design company active since 1927. The Cassina furniture collection "I grandi Maestri" began in 1964 with the collaboration of designers such as Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand. 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. Cassina's catalog for sofas, armchairs and chairs includes some of the most important design icons such as Cassina Le Corbusier, the famous Cassina LC1 chair, the Cassina LC2 armchair, the Cassina LC3 sofa and the Cassina LC4 Chaise Longue.
