Budapest, designed by Fracesco Rotondale for Formabilio, as the city it bears the name of, this coffee table has two parts that, if placed together, gives shape to a completely new form. It is a functional side table, that really captivate the attention for its delicate elegance and clean line.
The contrasting materials and finishing enhance the element duality. Beautiful and practical, with a minimal design that makes it always in harmony with any interior style.
Budapest comes from a reflection on the relationship between the parts and the rest, the name itself evokes a city where the river is both connection and division. As for Budapest coffee table unity is the final form, the individual parts in fact, while maintaining their individuality, become a real product only when combined together.
