In 1972, Luciano Bertoncini’s work was included in Italy: The New Domestic Landscape, a legendary MoMA exhibition that included Ettore Sottsass, Gae Aulenti, Mario Bellini, Joe Colombo and many other groundbreaking designers. The show kicked off Bertoncini’s career, and today he still designs furniture and architectural spaces from his studio in Treviso. The simplicity of his Min Table (2011) – which echoes the clean aesthetic of his Min Bed, a best-seller in our assortment since 2003 – is certain to inspire a creative workspace or elegant dining area. Min has a quiet and unassuming character, with balanced proportions and rounded corners. This large version seats six people (or perhaps eight, depending on your chairs and how well you know each other). Ships flat; assembly required. Made in Italy.
Powder-coated steel frame; powder-coated steel, tempered matte lacquer glass or MDF with oak or walnut veneer tabletop.
Since 1958, Luciano Bertoncini has been quietly and happily helping to create Italy's design scene. Some say that Bertoncini, a man who eschews the spotlight, hasn't received due credit for the impact he's had on contemporary European modernism. But that doesn't seem to bother him. "Bertoncini is neither envious nor bitter," says Virginio Briatore in the introduction to Bertoncini's 1999 retrospective; "he considers himself a lucky man, and he is always in good humor."
