The exceptional side table is an outstanding example of Aldo Turas work. The goatskin top has gorgeous markings and grain which is accentuated by the smooth, high-gloss lacquered finish. The experimental furniture designer was mainly concerned with the handcraft of tables, cabinets and lamps since the 1930s followed by opening his own manufacture for furniture close to Milan. Like Piero Fornasetti, he blended Art d├ęco and art nouveau with minimalist design. In the postwar years he countered the trend of mass production by staying faithful to traditional handicraft, which is why all of his pieces are of exceptional quality using unusual and precious materials.
