A low table design by architects Foster+Partners for Italian design brand Molteni & C uses an exclusive technology to create a highly unusually shaped table. The ‘Teso’ table is formed by a robotic arm, which is used to press and twist a perforated disc of steel into a tough, tapered cylinder.

“The low Teso table is the successor to the award-winning Arc table and shares a similarly experimental approach to materials and production methods.” says Molteni & C. “The design team tested different perforations to the flat metal sheet that would give the base strength, while creating a distinctive geometric patterned mesh. The result is a complex form where lightness and solidity attract and conquer unhindered.”

Teso is available in a brushed stainless steel, brushed brass or bronze painted finish. Functionality is provided by extra light (Ø 120) transparent glass tops that reveal the complexity of the structural forms from all angles.
