A round table with an architectural flourish: sophisticated, intricate and with a flair for drama. Following the first model in 2003 and the wood version in 2017, Lebeau goes outdoors with an aluminium version that reflects the same distinctive design and iconic silhouette. The graceful balance of positive and negative space, leitmotif of this series of tables, is also found in this new model, thanks to the Cassina expertise in processing materials and its creative interpretive and expressive prowess. The updated design reduces the number of staves to ten, curved to create the effect of a flower as it blooms. The tubular sections get thinner toward the centre, creating an enchanting visual interplay as the light passes through them.
