To complete the La Mise sofa collection, Nichetto designed Torei, a collection of graphic and essential side tables that have a strong Japanese influence. The solid wood table top, laminated in black or natural ash, has been hollowed out like a tray and rests on light metal supports. The tables of varying heights and dimensions can be paired and intersected as desired and transformed into small architectures.
Rectangular low tables, available in two di erent widths and heights: matte black metal base with top in solid wood natural ashwood or ashwood stained black finishes.
Artists and designers of all nationalities have drawn inspiration from Japan, and the legendary architect Charlotte Perriand and designer Luca Nichetto are no exception. Cassina exhibits examples from its collections that highlight the minimalist aesthetic and organic beauty of pieces inspired by Japanese aesethetics and traditions. Perriand spent many years studying in Japan, resulting in designs including the Ombra Tokyo chair, Nuage bookcase, and Tokyo chaise longue. Italian designer Nichetto’s fabric design, La Mise, shows the influence of traditional kimono designs, and Torei end tables in black or natural ash display a Japanese influence as well.
