The table Controvento, designed by Francesco Faccin, is an expression of a contemporary lifestyle.
The product name comes from the perfect blend of form and functionality, the foundation of the designer ‘s creative vocation.
Distinguishing feature of the project is the sophisticated design of the legs, thought to play the most structural function, but at the same time giving a strong distinctive character to the product clearly derived from bracings, always used in architecture.

The table, available in two sizes, is designed to accommodate from six to ten people and can be completed with a rotating swivel tray that promotes food sharing among all diners.
This product, designed for a domestic environment, is also perfect for Contract and Hospitality industry worlds.
