The famous Tavolo con Ruote designed by Gae Aulenti in 1980 is one of the best-known, most iconic FontanaArte products, on show in a large number of museums, including the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
The design idea came from how materials are moved around the production unit, where a wooden top on wheels transports the sheets of glass. An intuitive idea born out of an association of everyday tools. The table top is in 15 mm thick float glass and it rests on 4 industrial rubber wheels. The black-painted bolts are a deliberately visible feature.
The 35th Anniversary of the Tavolo con Ruote (1980-2015) has been celebrated with a Limited Edition of 350 pieces. The glass top of each one is pad printed with the words “FontanaArte, Tavolo con Ruote, Limited Edition” and the fork of one of the four wheels is laser etched with its serial number.
The limited edition table is only available in the square 120x120 cm size and it is provided with a certificate of authenticity indicating its serial number and guaranteeing the value of the item purchased, the result of a tradition going back more than 80 years.
