Aldo Rossi, 1991

Originally planned for Rossi’s studio in Via Santa Maria alla Porta, in Milan, Consiglio is a square or rectangular wooden table of large dimensions. Like most of the furniture designed by the Milanese architect-designer, this too is an essential architectural work that becomes “domestic” when its proportions are reduced, without, however, losing its own monumentality.

The legs are rectangular prisms with rounded edges, slightly recessed in relation to the top, with its tall edges. Wood is the only material of which it is made (american cherry or maple). Its special structural conception allows it to be easily extended beyond its three-meter length.

Consiglio was re-edited in 2021 within the ARCHIVIOUNIFOR collection.
