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 and many other groundbreaking designers. The show kicked off Bertoncini’s career, and today he is a furniture designer working from his studio in Treviso. The simplicity of his Min Table (2011) echoes the clean aesthetic of his Min Bed, which has been a best-seller in our assortment since 2003. With its white steel frame and choice of glass or steel tabletop, this versatile table is an apt choice for an elegant dining area or creative workspace. Rounded corners and balanced proportions further its quiet character. The small Min Table seats four people. Ships flat; assembly required. Made in Italy.
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."
