Belleville Round Bistro Table by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec for Vitra
Vitra's Belleville Tables are modeled on the typology of the classic bistro table, but thanks to the selection of solid wood, veneer, melamine, or HPL table tops, their appearance is highly variable. The slender legs flow in a continuous sweeping line from the splayed bottom along the central column to the table top. In star-shaped or paired configurations, they form bases for small and large bistro tables or dining tables.
The color and surface texture of the cast aluminum table legs, which have a black power-coated finish, are nearly indistinguishable from the plastic frame of the perfectly matched Belleville Chair. And since the materials of the table top and seat shells are either identical or harmoniously coordinated, the table and chairs form a unified yet diverse group - a hybrid family of furnishings whose materiality resists classification. Thus, the tables can be ideally combined with Belleville Chairs in bustling bistro settings as well as in sleekly modern galleries or diversely styled home environments.
The Belleville Table is available as a small round or square table with a star-shaped base or as a bistro and dining table in different widths and lengths with slightly arched T-legs. Depending on the model, the table tops come in solid wood, wood veneer, melamine, or solid core material.
