About This Item
Marble console by Angelo Mangiarotti for Skipper Eros in white Carrara marble.
Designed by Angelo Mangiarotti for Skipper from the 'Eros' series, Carrara marble console with top fitted on two conical bases, Italy, 1971. Given Mangiarotti's research on furniture without joints, this console table was an example of the result of a gravity interlocking design in which the console top because of its weight stably fits into the truncated conical legs. The word 'Eros' refers to the male-female coupling of this interlocking solution.
