Specchio di Venere – table | Sibà - stool

This table, features an elegant top with rounded edges, resembling the colours and shape of the famous lake which came from a volcanic crater. From the central part to the outside edges the design reflects the connection between land and volcanic rock. The curved legs resemble the waves of the sea as the stools Sibà are inspired by the island's mountain community.

The table-top is crafted with coloured marble which is cut and then sculpted by numerically controlled machines, then it is all manually finished and assembled into one single piece. The legs are created by four semi-circular white stone elements, featuring curved incisions and by two central columns in PietraPece.

Matching stools Sibà are also available: the white marble, rounded seat area is covered with a piece of coloured marble while the five curved and sculpted legs are in white marble.
