Up&Up hit the scene in 1969. At the foot of the Apuan alps where Michelangelo cut his stone, Up&Up have invited incredible designers – Sergio Asti, Ettore Sottsass, Matteo Thun – to explore new forms in marble.This minimal coffee table, designed by architect Angelo Mangiarotti, is cut from solid travertine stone. Travertine is a form of limestone that exhibits pleasing colour variations – its holey surface adding interesting texture.
A perfect circle, on a simple cylindrical pedestal. The pedestal has carved out bands, which provide the only surface decoration. The minimal form allows the stone to steal the show. Good vintage condition, minor surface wear.
