Dining Table

by Anna Castelli and Ignazio Gardella, Italy 1960s

Originally designed in 1964 by Anna Castelli Ferrieri and Ignazio Gardelli for a palace in Venice, the dining table model 4997 represents a mix between traditional Italian design combined with modern approaches and affordable materials: polyester resin and glass fibres. It was the first dining table Anna Castelli Ferrieri designed for the famous Italian furniture company Kartell, which she founded together with her husband Giulio Castelli, a chemical engineer. By founding Kartell, Anna and Giulio forever changed how a popular material as plastic is evaluated and employed. 

As one of only three women studying architecture at the Milan Polytechnic Institute in the 1940s and later becoming Kartell’s art director between 1976 and 1987, Anna Castelli Ferrieri is part of a narrative that focuses on the development of modern plastics for the improvement of lives and of product design itself.

Please note that the table has some small chipped spots and discolourations due to its age and use. If requested we can offer restoration which could be done by our craftsman or, of course, also could be organised locally.

Designer: Anna Castelli, Ignazio Gardella

SOLD Writing Desk in the style of Silvio Cavartorta

Italy 1950s

Very rare Italian desk and writing table produced in the 50s in the style of Silvio Cavatorta. The light brown wooden desk with a lacquered surface features black painted metal feet and lovely brass details. This Italian writing table perfectly embodies functionality, clean lines and simplicity.

 

The family company Cavatorta was established in Rome in 1869 by Eugenio Cavatorta. It produced its furniture only in small and exclusive series, its main customers being embassies, hotels, schools and ships. Each furniture fitting was designed uniquely for each specific commission. During the 1930’s, led by Eugenio’s son Silvio, the company started to obtain prestigious commissions for international organizations and ministries. Silvio’s son Franco studied architecture during which he took extended internships in the studios of Le Corbusier, Arne Jacobsen, Finn Juhl and Sven Markelius. He was the first to present these northern modernist developments in Italy during a conference on Scandinavian furniture. During this time the Cavatorta’s continued to obtain big commissions, the most famous of which must have been the first class dining room of the Andrea Doria. While most other well-known and loved designers embraced the industrial methods of production and reproduction in the second part of the 20th century, the Cavatorta company remains truthful to its own standards in its rejection of large and industrial production in favor of fine material and craft. Due to these unique commissions, the family-company’s craft and material oriented style of production combined with a cosmopolitan interest stretching beyond Italian design, Cavatorta’s furniture remains unique, rare and of a very high quality, aesthetically as well as in its construction.
