Most tables have plain, vertical legs. They do the job, but they're pretty boring, and if you know anything about Philippe Starck, you know that the man hates boring. Dole Mélipone has legs that are curved and rise from the ground at unexpected angles. The whole thing is held together with steel wires. Starck added a tempered glass tabletop, so whoever sits down can marvel at what he has created. Available with circular clear glass or structured glass table top, in two sizes.
Designed in 1981, by Philippe Starck, the Dole Mélipone table carefully poises a glass table top above centerpiece sculptural steel legs. Select from clear glass or structured glass circular table top, in two sizes.
Material(s): Legs made of tubular steel, steel wires. Tabletop in 8 mm tempered clear or structured glass.
Dimensions: H 28.5" Dia 47.2" or 55.1"

XO. An old cognac ? "Kisses and hugs"? Look again without applying a known pattern. XO is simply a cross and circle. XO is all about breaking down the familiar and giving it a fresh perspective. By putting together forms that do not seem to go along naturally, they hope to show you that, in fact they do. Like a cross and circle. Simple, graphic - and yet unexpected.
In the beginning, back in 1984, Philippe Starck was raising to stardom; Gérald Mialet's spirits were high. Together, they crossed the line and decide to create a new design house: XO. To quote Starck, "To make a beautiful baby, parents have to be in love". XO is definitely a love affair.View other products from xO Design
