A Seat for Meetings

Inspired by the mathematical harmony set out in Palladio’s own rules of architecture published in Quattro Libri Dell’Architecttura, La Rotonda is a table and chair set designed to recreate the perfect meeting place – a spot to exchange ideas, just like the famous monument it’s named after.

The central hall, accessible through the 4 loggias, was an ideal point to observe and contemplate the landscape working in perfect harmony with the building. In that same way the table is imagined as a point of view on the world, and the people who have access to it through the 4 “loggias” chairs, will be able to compare themselves and discuss the worldly ideas surrounding them.
