    Martinelli Luce Vignelli Metafora Coffee Table
    Designer: Richard Neutra
    Manufacturer: Lella and Massimo Vignelli

    Martinelli Luce Vignelli Metafora Coffee Table, also known as the Metaphora Table. Metafora, a low square coffee table, was designed by Lella and Massimo Vignelli in 1979. The culmination of Lella and Massimo Vignelli's experimentation, this enduring icon of modern Italian design explores the relationship between art and design. The four forms of the Euclidean geometry, the Cube, the Cylinder, the Sphere and the Pyramid, made of four different marbles, represent the basis of the table finished with a big sheet of transparent glass. The four elements are independent and can be positioned freely, without the table losing its own identity regardless the position of the elements it consists of, being them all necessary however to make it be stable. The epitome of Italian modernist style, the Metafora compliments any refined interior and makes a great coffee table in the living room, lobby or office. Select from four different stone types including marble or travertine.

    The mixed color Metafora table include a pyramid in white Carrara marble, a cube in black Marquinia marble, a cylinder in Travertine and a sphere in Rasotica marble. Also available with all four geometrical shapes in either white Carrara marble, black Marquinia marble or travertine.

    Lella and Massimo Vignelli are almost inextricably linked with the words and world of modern design. Their vision–in graphics, books, maps, dinnerware, furniture, architecture–has guided us, educated us, nourished us and in many ways, shaped our perception of the world around us. Though best known for their brilliant work in the world of graphic design, the Vignellis' products are likewise renowned. oth Massimo and Lella Vignelli were born and educated in Italy. In 1960, after fellowships to study in the United States, they opened the Vignelli Office of Design and Architecture in Milan. In 1971, they established Vignelli Associates in New York, and Vignelli Design in 1978. "Design is one" has been the underlying precept of the Vignellis' work, a commitment to order, coherence and clarity. In many ways, the Vignellis are considered to have given graphic design its stature in contemporary society. Their work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Cooper-Hewitt Museum in New York, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Montreal; and the Die Neue Sammlung in Munich.
