teatro table

Design Marc Berthier, 1979/2010
Solid beech wood, MDF or tempered glass top
Made by Magis

Historically, travelling theatres such as the Commedia dell'Arte or that of Moliere's company performed in public squares, on a "stage" made of floorboards set on trestles, known in Italy as Piccolo Teatro, or small theatre. Thus, Teatro trestle is the archetype for the adjustable trestles used with drawing boards by artists, architects, etc. Marc Berthier redesigned it for Magis in 1979, seeking in its proportions a structural and functional harmony such that it could be used for a work table (in both a seated and a standing position), dinner table or console table.

The base is solid beech wood, and assembled using visible tenons and mortices. The top can be specified with either tempered glass or MDF laminate (one side black, the other white) with edge in natural beech. The table was re-issued by Magis in 2010.

The Magis company was founded in 1976 and had their first success in 1984 with Stepladder that was influential and crossed over into the designer furniture market from the hardware stores. They had two more huge successes in 1994 with Jasper Morrisons Bottleand the Lyra stool from the Italia Group, their bestseller. Two years later, the Bombo stool designed by Stefano Giovannoni would gain enormous success and cultivate an imitable style.
