Designer Patricia Urquiola

Brand Molteni&C

Asterias, a cactus that grows in the mountainous regions of Mexico, lends its name to this new design from Patricia Urquiola. A generously-sized round table, featuring a central base reminiscent of the cactus from which it takes its name. It consists of six curved, wedge-shaped, wooden panels, applied protruding over the central plinth. The panels are 3D printed. The top (160 or 180 cm) features a rounded edge sub-divided, in the wood version, into four wedges that give rise to an interesting geometric pattern. The table can also be fitted with a practical accessory: a central Lazy Susan turntable, very popular in Asian countries.
