Orbital Table: High Tech Sexy



I’m not sure how to make this post feel like anything other than an ad for Calligaris‘s new Orbital table but I’m so taken with the demo video that I can’t resist posting it. With a gentle nudge the pivoting mechanism — designed by Pininfarina, the renowned design and engineering company behind Ferrai, Maserati and Alfa Romeo — expands or contracts the sleek glass, steel and polyurethane table. The Orbital, which retails in Canada for $7,833, recently won a German Interior Innovation Award. This is one sexy dining table.

    Fascinating mechanism and the pedestal super sexy but IMHO too good looking to blend with an industrial scheme and a tad too trendy looking to be considered transitional so I’m gonna save my 7-8 K for a Maserati ;)
    Thanks for bringing the goods to light Chris.

    There is a similar “cofee table” Roche Bobois. Cheers Sue

    I love furniture like this as it is very functional for both the condo dweller and suburbanite. As you can’t buy a Maserati for $7k this might be in the running. Do you know any retailers that are planning to carry it?

    Hi Julie,
    Here’s a link to the Calligaris retail locator. The link in the post is specifically for the Toronto store.
