Gae Aulenti Jumbo table in Carrara Marble 1966
An early mid century modern Jumbo coffee table designed by Gae Aulenti and made by Knoll. Carrara marble, originally designed in 1965. The Jumbo table is definitely one of the masterpieces designed by remarkable Italian designer Gae Aulenti. Square table top with four cylindrical cluster legs. This cocktail table is graceful in combination with opulent strength. Beautiful white Carrara marble with grey veining. This table is marked with the old Knoll trade mark on each part of the table. It's therefor we know the table is an early production, since Knoll's new corporate identity and logo had been introduced in 1967. An early production of a true design icon, in perfect condition.
