'Screw Table' by Tom Dixon
Some of the novelties Tom Dixon showed during the Design Week in Milan at the famous Superstudio Più refer to the roots of the British designer, who made his name in the 1980s with rough, self-made, welded furniture.
The ‘Screw Table’, for example, sartorially combines an industrial look with high-class materials.
Made from a cast iron tripod base with a white marble top, the industrial strength of the aluminium screw enables multiple heights by simply spinning the top.

'XXX' by Johanna Grawunder
The glass manufacturer Glas Italia presented a range of pretty diverse products this year, among them the colourful table series by the Milano based American designer Johanna Grawunder. The overlapping variably tinted elements create a multi-faceted play of colours and underline the geometric basic design of the table.
'Vitruvian' by Piero Lissoni
Piero Lissonis contibution is a very clear and minimal series of rectangular high tables. The base, in transparent extra-light 19 mm. thick glass, shaped and ground with a shiny curved edge, is composed of two supporting elements, linked to a tie bar by means of satined steel plates. The extreme thinness and lightness of the base, achieved through a sophisticated and complex production process, corresponds to the solidity which the special tempering process provides.
