Albeit very different materials, the aluminum of the top and the timber of the supports of the Coccola Side Table do complement each other quite well. The piece embodies a harmonious expression of more traditional and industrial designs in one coherent minimalist object.

Luca Nichetto employed a special sand-casting technique to mold the heavy surface of the furnishing. The David Design product has been given a bit of a raised rim so that it can function as a fixed platter on stilts. Gorgeous pale oak wood was whittled down into three cylindrical dowels, each with a slight crook at one end. Here, the legs attach to the Coccola Side Table and guarantee the stability of the contemporary piece.
