Revolutionary as much as it is quite different from any other in terms of shape and potential, this multifunctional table is a perfect summation of Charlotte Perriand’s take on l’art de vivre. The structure consists of the simple but perfect placement of fourteen staves placed side-by-side, assembled with signature style by Cassina’s carpenters. Each of these elements combines into an extremely elegant, fan-shaped and versatile whole, lending itself to a dynamic and innovative applications whatever the situation. Depending on the choice of width of the central part, Ventaglio can, when used as a dining table, accommodate between five and nine guests. In the office, several people can sit round Ventaglio’s asymmetrical desk-top, with plenty of room for computers and other professional tools.
