$5,000 or Best Offer
Stunning and rare 'Lunario' dining table by Italian architect Cini Boeri, a true Minimalist masterpiece, this wonderful example is from the original Italian edition released by Gavina (Milan),Italy in 1971. This beautifully elegant sculptural form features a cantilevered eccentric tempered glass top which is counterweighted by the heavily weighted polished chromed steel oval form base for stability. A true Minimalist art form. The original dining table model by 'Gavina', Italy is rare and can equally be used as a luxurious desk. As described in the November 1971 issue of 'ABITARE' (please see image 5), the 'lunario' system was very ingenious, the weighted eccentric form stainless steel base elements were produced in two different heights, which could also be stacked which allowed for the creation of several table height options, from low to average height coffee tables through to desks and dining tables as per this example.
Excellent condition. Was my father’s personal desk, so hasn’t left the family since being purchased 40+ years ago.
