Triangular Dining Table „Eros“
Triangular Dining Table „Eros“ by Angelo Mangiarotti
„Happiness comes from correctness.“ a very German quote, one might think – but it was coined by Angelo Mangiarotti, architect, designer and professor, born in Milan in 1921.
Perhaps because as a visiting professor in Chicago in the 50s he met Frank Lloyd Wright, Walter Gropius and Mies van der Rohe. Or maybe it just describes his profound architectural understanding.
And precision is an essential component of his series of „Eros“ tables developed for Skipper in 1971: they consist only of a marble slab and also made of marble column feet.
The weight of the slab stabilises the structure like the end stone of a vault. Due to the pure marble and the complete renunciation of other connecting elements, the table has an enormous sculptural presence.
