For Bonaldo, Gino Carollo designed Origami, a table and a console which draw their inspiration from the namesake ancient Oriental art.

“I have always been fascinated by the craftsmanship of the artisans in our tradition and by that of the sophisticated and subtle art of origami”, explains the designer.

Indeed, the base of the table consists of thin metal sheets folded like the sheets of paper used for origami, with the aim of making the frame stable and achieving the utmost visual lightness, almost as if it were challenging gravity. The top is bevelled to recall the design of the base and to further slim down the overall appearance.
