Diesis marble coffee table by Antonio Citterio for BBItalia


The Diesis coffee table by Antonio Citterio is an iconic 20th Century design still in production 40 years on, and is praised by architects around the world for its aerodynamic and illusionary ‘floating’ design. SOLD 24-06-24

Designed / launched by whom/when Italian architect Antonio Citterio designed the Diesis coffee table in 1979 for B&BItalia.

Design Inspiration Counterintuitive design, the heavy marble top appears to float above the sculptural base.

Fabrication Smooth honed venatino statuaretto marble from Carrara Italy on a bright brushed die-cast aluminium base.

Hidden Design Features The top has an underside edge bevel, a unique design feature seen only when seated. Also there are no ugly support brackets, the base has posts  that fit inside the marble. This is also how you can tell the marble is the original

Design Consigned Stylist The Diesis coffee table is a sound design investment that will last and go with any timber flooring, or upholstery finishes you have. The refined elegance and subtle detailing of Diesis adds architectural sophistication to any space. The low height of 29cm works well with most contemporary modular sofas.

Design Consigned Collectors Released in 1979, Diesis remains one of B&B Italias most enduring Collections. Authentic original from B&B Italia.Note, there are no replicas of this authentic design probably because it is too hard to replicate the original.

Provenance One owner 2012

Our Condition Report 4/5 I recently photographed and viewed this Diesis table. Was amazed the owner had had a glass top made to protect the marble ! Marble is pristine. Base no structural faults and still has the bright finish.
