Curling is a table with a delicate, clean and harmonious design, that leaves no room for superfluous decoration.
The base of Curling table is carved from a single block of Carrara or black Marquinia marble, resulting in the simplest and purest of forms. A metal cylinder sits on top of the marble base to support the table top, in ultra-clear transparent glass, creating a truly sleek overall effect. Ultimately, Curling is defined by its instinctive, immediate design, its bold character and its imposing scenic presence. “As Michelangelo once said, the sculpture is already inside the marble - all you need to do is remove the superfluous,” says Lipparini, explaining the concept behind this table for Bonaldo. “The idea for Curling came from visits to the Carrara marble quarries. I was inspired by these white, cubic blocks of marble.”

The collaboration between Gino Carollo and Bonaldo started at the beginning of 2000. It was founded on a shared outlook towards internationalization and industrial design, toward product design linked to engineering, to the meticulousness of the process that starts from the prototyping stage up to the realization of finished models. Some of the most popular products made for Bonaldo include the Fun bookshelf, the April, May and June shelving units and the AX table.
