The final, conceptually and structurally more evolved episode in the story of the “modern” table, re-written by master designer Angelo Mangiarotti with his “Eros”, “Incas”, “Asolo “ and, now, “More” tables throughout twenty years of experimentation. Here it is a simple granite worktop into which you fit 4 steel legs with doubly inclined profiles.
In More, at the upper end, at the point of contact with the top, the section of the leg becomes a truncated cone which fits into the top, essentially repeating the idea of the “gravity joint” tried out with the Eros table. The inclination of the leg, however, which increases the stability of the table, determines a hole whose upper surface becomes an elliptical shape that helps to further lock the leg in that point, stopping it from rotating. The original solution involved the use of marble tops only. Having decided also to use wooden tops a mechanical fastening steel solution was adopted that suits both materials.
