Clay Table by Marc Rusin for Desalto

Can’t believe it is two years ago I last visited imm, January for me has always been such a happy month working with imm. We had a beautiful lunch in Paris in October where we got a first glimpse from the fair in 2022… yes that one that did not happen either this month. You can still read the imm interior design trends for 2022 here on the blog: Six interior design trends for imm 2022

You might ask yourself why I talk about visiting the imm Cologne fair. It actually was the Instagram account of Desalto bringing me back to imm 2020 when scrolling through their Instagram after I came across the perfect shaped Clay table by Marc Rusin for Desalto.


Clay Table

First seen at Milan 2015 and awarded with several awards. The Clay table is almost more than just a table. I totally love the sculpture and the harmonious proportions. I am not sure if it is the same table I have fallen in love with years ago at Architonic in Tortona already but just loved to show it in here as it is so good in my eyes.

Available in indoor and outdoor versions, with round or elliptical bases and tops. Tops of glass, ceramic, covered MDF or marble. The integrated tray centerpiece as pictured above is upon request. Also available in a mini version to use as a low coffee or side table, pictured below.
