ABLE TABLE / POLTRONOVA

Milan, Italy 

Poltronova was founded by Sergio Cammilli in 1957 and was the first company to include in its catalog both the mentors (Gae Aulenti, Giovanni Michelucci, Angelo Mangiarotti, Paolo Portoghesi) of ‘Good Design’ as well as the leading exponents of ‘New Design’, who were then called Radicals (the young Archizoom and Superstudio groups), reflecting the multifaceted nature of Italian design. In the early years of the company’s history a fundamental contribution was made by Ettore Sottsass Jr., who became its art director in 1958, with Poltronova producing scores of his designs, from furniture to ceramics.

The collection ‘Able Table’ collection was designed by Tim Power in 1997 under the art direction of Biagio Cissotti.
