There is a timeless beauty to these Riviera Tables that references the outdoor rock furnishings in the grottos of the Ticino Valley. Typically comprising a large slab that's supported by a pair of panels beneath either end, these gathering places have a beautiful basic quality that easily fulfils a need.

For DADADUM, Alfredo Häberli created a collection of three pieces of furniture that comprises a coffee table, a console table and a side table. Each one is assembled with thinly sliced sections of stone that are slotted together with polished precision. Every component that goes into the Riviera Tables has smooth rounded corners and edges for a naturally worn effect to the Cresciano, Calanca, Lodrino and Onsernone marbles.
