The Molteni & C Ava dining table was created by Foster & Partners, one of the most innovative architectural and integrated design studios in the world.
True to their policy of designing eco-friendly buildings and furnishings, Foster & Partners have produced a large wood finish dining table suitable for any contemporary setting. Made entirely of wood, the natural material par excellence, the Ava Table responds to the ever-increasing need for designer furniture to meet the demand for eco sustainability.
Inspired by the lightweight forms of aircraft wings and bridges, Ava consists of two basic segments – a middle section and a cantilevered end – that can be combined to create a single table of any length. The table’s bridge-like structure is a highly sculptural object with minimal detailing and a high-quality finish. The joints between the two sections are accentuated by a shadow gap that references architectural traditions.
The geometry allows the end sections to cantilever up to one metre out on either side, while remaining stable and rigid. The entire table is made from timber, save the fixing elements, and the sculpted legs taper from a wider section at the top for support to a thin line towards the floor.
Available in three sizes in either eucalyptus or walnut. The largest size is one of the longest tables we offer at 3.8m long which will comfortably seat up to 16 people. Ava is perfect as a traditional dining table, or it can be used in a commercial environment, as a board room table, for example.
