Smalto table, 2019

Smalto table by Barber Osgerby for Knoll.

The sculptural Smalto table collection by Barber Osgerby was conceived through an approach to materiality, the contemporary graphic forms reinterpreting themes of classic designs. The choice of enamel-coated steel allowed for a design which would be durable, lightfast and waterproof. Enamel finishes can provide a depth of colour and a finish not often associated with large furniture items.

The duality of environmental conditions is also an asset, with indoor furniture rarely suited to outside. 

The detailed design of the table was informed by the material, with generous radius to the top and large cylindrical legs. Whilst robust, the vulnerability of enamel comes through chipping on corners and sharp edges.

“What's interesting is that the material actually informed the shape of the table which is unusual, as with metal or wood you can make whatever shape you want.”

Edward Barber

The tabletop is made from steel with porcelain enamel scratch-resistant finish, the honeycomb core enhances resistance and eliminates noise. The legs are made from tubular steel with the same enamel finish and are also fitted with adjustable polished glides and aluminium rims.

The moulded steel is finished using a process that fires the enamel powder at extremely high temperatures. The simplicity and purity of the design are achieved through the high-quality execution in both the metalwork and the firing of the enamel.

The oval tables have a powder-coat finish.

Available in blue, grey or grey/green.
