A sinuous masterpiece, inspired by the majestic qualities of the butterfly

Taking inspiration from one of the world’s most ephemeral creatures is the Butterfly Table from renowned Italian brand, Cattelan Italia. Designed by Nucleo+ studio, Butterfly is a show-stopping, sinuous piece, which celebrates the beauty of craftsmanship and Cattelan Italia’s signature touch of Italian grandeur.

A celebrated name of contemporary Italian design, Cattelan Italia continues to impress with this latest showpiece. Boasting an exceptional range of furniture and interior pieces, the brand embraces the sophisticated, historic materiality of classic Italian design and renders it in visually striking, contemporary forms.

This masterpiece combines the weightlessness of glass with the grounding qualities of metal. Featuring a strong, steel base in undulating curves, Butterfly brings a new, disruptive personality to the dining room. This table replaces the traditional legs of the dining table with an exquisitely crafted base, reminiscent of a butterfly’s wings. The iconic base is available in titanium or bronze embossed lacquered steel, with a range of finishes available.

Sitting on top of the iconic base is a transparent glass surface, delicate in form with an elegant silhouette. This juxtaposition with the robust appearance of Butterfly’s legs creates a visually intriguing contrast, making a sculptural statement for the dining experience.

The Butterfly Table can also be crafted with Cattelan Italia’s extraordinary Keramik finish, adorned with the Marmi ceramic top, which is available in a range of variations; from the fierce personality of the Portoro ceramic with a dark, rich base to the latest Breccia with electrifying, golden veins.

More than meets the eye, the Butterfly Table brings an artful touch to the everyday dining room. An inspiring feat of captivating geometries, exemplary design function and long-lasting style, Cattelan Italia’s latest creation is an architectural masterpiece that you can’t miss.
