Blitz Dining Table by Mario Bellini is a sculptural and unexpectedly powerful table produced in a limited and numbered edition of only 100 pieces. Blitz stands out for its flat, slim, geometric external frame, which finds its natural completion in the curved and sinuous shapes of the interior, revealing aesthetic and constructive solutions reminiscent of a suspension bridge.
Bamboo was chosen for the frame due to its lightness and rapid growth, a wood ennobled by fine solid wood processing. It is an unusual choice for indoor use, but one that reflects a unique combination of design, engineering, and high-quality cabinetmaking.
The unique surface contrasts with the table’s interior in a soft black shellac effect finish. This solution generates intense visual effects, where curved shadows seem to float on flat surfaces. The top folds at the ends like origami, becoming a support that tapers and folds again in order to rest on the ground. Technological precision guarantees extreme solidity, despite the table’s apparent lightness.
