The Reale Table is a design-classic of the brothers Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni. It is based on a design of the year 1946 and manufactured by Zanotta. The multi-talented Mollino (who has been a successful racing driver, skier and of course designer) became famous for his dared, partly also surreal designs. One example for his fantastic is the Reale Table with its exceptional wooden frame.
On the frame lies a noble crystal top with inclined, ground borders, whereby the frame is deservedly emphasized.
Zantta produces Reale after an original design by Mollino. In the beginning of the 20th century, the tables were manufactured in a widely lower number. This fact and the specialty of the designs of Mollino led to immense prices on auctions today – that is how Reale was the first piece of furniture which has been paid more than one million dollars in an auction in the 20th century.
Reale is also available in further editions (size, material, colour).
