A strong personality that is always in movement, as if it were walking: this is how the Belgian designer Alain Gilles sees the Big Table table, which he has designed for Bonaldo. Big Table is a large, functional table which, although created in traditional materials like steel, wood and tremped glass, is characterised by extremely original design, so much so that the perception of the product changes depending on the angle from which it is viewed.
The legs are laser-cut steel plates and each one has a different width that highlights the different shades and nuances. Big Table is available in three colour versions: with white legs, multicoloured (coral red, orange, green and lilac) and in a combination of browns and greys (powder pink, brown, dove grey and amaranth). The rectangular table top can be fixed or extendable. The fixed version, which can also be made to measure, is available in tremped glass, black walnut or – from 2011 – solid European walnut. In the extendable version, the top and extensions are made from a single piece of black walnut veneer in order to ensure continuity in the wood grain between the parts. Big Table has won the Good Design Award 2009.
Expandable tables and more dimensions are available 200, 220, 250 X 100 cm and 300 X 108 cm
