What I like

First of all, I like the tour de force that this table constitutes: all the bevel details are beautiful and lighten the foot, which flies away in a helix. The mirrored base returns this helix support, whose color is tinged with a very light blue. The detail of the chrome metal plates still reflects the light and reflects the environment.

The light plays between the base, the support and the top, forming a real modernist sculpture of light: a very beautiful nod to the cubist sculptors, with a “je ne sais quoi” of the 1980s. Let’s not forget that the years 1975-1980 saw Art Deco return to center stage: our table is its embodiment.

So I love this amazing work, both massive and airy designed by Pierangelo Gallotti for the firm Gallotti&Radice.

I also like its size, sufficient for 6 to 8 guests, in front of dishes as refined as the table itself.

Lastly, I like the fact that it’s an iconic table by Gallotti & Radice, a specialist in glass and metal furniture, whose director, Mr. Marco Radice, found the model, Vaso, for us, as well as the date of creation, in 1980, and the period of production, between 1980 and 2000. The creator, Pierangelo Gallotti signed a large number of always elegant models, often in glass.

Technical description

Pierangelo Gallotti for GALLOTTI&RADICE

“Vaso” dining room table with a round bevelled glass top; it rests on a square metal shaft surmounted by a chrome motif, welcoming 4 helical fins each formed of two bevelled glass trapezoids, the assembly concealed by a chrome metal plate; round weighted base in bevelled mirror glass, “Gallotti” engraving.

Creation in 1980, production between 1980 and 2000.

Tiny scratches on two chrome metal plates. The 4 felt pads between the barrel and the tray reported.

Mr. Marco Radice kindly informed us that he did not know of any other tables signed “Gallotti”, the company’s policy being not to sign the production. Because of this, the signature may have been brought back after it was made, or to be shown at a salon or at a retailer.

Mix & Match

This “Vaso” table by Pierangelo Gallotti is a sculpture, but a sculpture of light: its Art Deco side mixed with the taste of the 1980s allows it to rub shoulders with creations from the 1930s to now, without complex: it is strong enough to be associated to our pair of peacock blue G10 armchairs by Pierre Guariche, but also its variation in off-white terry cloth! Likewise, its angles will be taken up by those of the Grass Hopper armchairs by Sonja Wasseur, with dark brown triangles! of the 1980s.

But it can give a cue to much more colorful harmonies: the tapestry “Nuit d’Espagne” or the painting “Composition- vers 1950-1951” by Edgard Pillet have this colorful joy that will send bright green, purple, orange reflections on our table!

I would also present in the same room our triptych of stained glass with a beautiful abstract decor, housed in backlit boxes!

Still to play on the light, I would place nearby the heavy lamp by antoniofelice botta in plexiglass and chromed metal or the astonishing Pyramid lamp by Tonello & Montagna Grillo for High Society (1972)!

Why not insert our large base in white lacquered metal, with geometric shapes that will be a nod to those of our table!Description

To know more

The designer

Pierangelo Gallotti is known for his elegant creations, combining glass and metal. He partnered with Luigi Radice to found Gallotti&Radice in 1955.

The editor


When Pierangelo Gallotti and Luigi Radice joined forces in 1955 to form their own design company, the duo shared a vision of fine craftsmanship and experimentation with materials. Originally known for its decorative objects and unique handmade furniture, Gallotti & Radice has evolved to become the first company in Italy to create furniture entirely in crystal glass.

Glass has always been at the heart of the company and over the years Gallotti & Radice has pioneered new techniques and finishes, such as painting and overlaying the transparent surface with a very thin layer of parchment of goatskin, as well as the design of pieces that blend glass with other materials, from marble to brass and wood. The ‘Adam’ table, created by Luigi Massoni in 1971, is the company’s first piece made entirely of glass. Massoni then helped the two friends plan their glass-based headquarters in Brianza, the heart of Italy’s furniture manufacturing, not far from Milan.

Other key pieces from those early days that helped define the company’s aesthetic of strong silhouettes and minimal details include the chrome-framed “SirT 32” coffee table and the two-tier circular “Riki” cart. Both designed by Gallotti in 1971, these true modern classics are still part of the collection today.

In 1996, after 40 years of activity, the duo passed the baton to their children – Silvia and Massimo Gallotti and Marco Radice – and with the new generation a shift towards a total lifestyle concept took place. However, it is reassuring to see that the company’s design approach remains unchanged, as Gallotti & Radice continues to work locally with the best craftsmen to ensure traditional skills are upheld.

Collaboration with external designers is also an integral part of Gallotti & Radice’s DNA, and is a practice that the second generation has continued to successfully adopt. Pinuccio Borgonovo designed ‘Air’, the company’s collection of office systems which was launched in 2008 and remains a best-seller today, while Patricia Urquiola’s ‘Changes’ (2009) modular mirror system was so popular that it was expanded into a full lifestyle collection in 2014. It now includes sofas, side tables, shelving and lighting, with many additions designed by Massimo Castagna.
