Biplane

Alberto Meda's design fulfils both my thirst of beauty and my hunger for intelligence applied to everyday objects. The Biplane table series he designed for Alias does both.

Meda uses two rather slim plywood pieces and anchors them to a number of die-cast aluminium legs creating a parallelogram-based structure that assures absolute stiffness and a surprising physical lightness. 
The system is pretty flexible, depending on the size and the shape of the table you adjust the number of legs needed for structuring it and the game is done.

But shortly after all this revealed to be a product of our unquiet imagination: he is for real, thank goodness.
