Available in a variety of sizes and finishes, Jorge Pensi's collection of café and dining tables are quickly becoming the standard for outdoor cafés in Europe. Pensi created this versatile design in 1988 to coordinate with his Toledo Stacking Chair. Made with recyclable materials, the "disks" style has a stainless steel tabletop patterned with sanded discs. A UV-resistant metallic laminate tabletop is also available. The tabletop stands on a polished and anodized cast aluminum base with a tubular aluminum center column and wide, sturdy feet with black silicone glides that won't scuff floors. This table is Greenguard Indoor Air Quality Certified® for its use of low-emitting products. Pensi's collection of tables has been honored with the 1990 Design Center Stuttgard Award; 1988 "Delta Plate" award of ADI FAD; and Sidi Selection, first place, in 1988. Manufactured by Amat-3 for Knoll® according to the exacting specifications of the designer. Made in Spain.

Until the 1970's Spain did not play a large role in the narrative of 20th century design. However, a renewed sense of vitality and freedom blossomed in Spain following the death of Franco, and in the city of Barcelona a new Spanish design movement emerged that would soon be recognized internationally. Many of Barcelona's regional designers made reference to the style of Antoni Gaudi, as well as to the avant garde heritage of painter Joan Miro. Others developed a more individual, modern and universally appealing style. Two of the most prominent of these architects and designers were Javier Mariscal and Jorge Pensi.
Jorge Pensi studied architecture in Buenos Aires. In 1977, he joined Alberto Lievore, Oriol Pibernat and Noberto Chaves in founding the design consultancy Grupo Berenguer. That same year, Pensi acquired Spanish citizenship and established a second design office with Lievore in Barcelona. The Barcelona studio designed exhibition stands for Perobell and the SIDI group in 1984. Read more >
