Zanotta Gaetano table by Gae Aulenti
1st series 1970/1971
The original Zanotta Gaetano glass table offered here is from the first or pre-series by Zanotta from 1970/1971.
The peculiarity of the early / first copies manifests itself in the extraordinary technical processing of the glass table top..
On the rear surface of the glass plate (top and bottom) are a total of 8 symmetrically arranged round glass melts (about 2-3 mm in diameter),
on which the glass plate was suspended or fixed with mechanical holding devices during the hardening process (technically in front of toughened safety glass) -see photo 7
On the underside of the glass table top, shading similar to the shape of waffle pear appears, depending on daylight and angle of light
- these were created by depositing the "extremely hot glass pane" (in the curing process temperature near the melting point) on a correspondingly structured storage area.
Original table tops from the later years up to 1980 no longer show these special features, as the process of producing single-pane safety glass has evolved.
A mechanical fixation was no longer necessary, since the glass panes were guided flat by ESG ovens, without mechanical locking.
Condition / Status:
According to the age (49 years), overall very good condition
Frame / Folding Boks / Hinges: Very good, with minor traces of use
Glass table top: no chipping in the edge area, no breaks, no noise
due to the use of various, partial scratches and abrasions of the glass surface,
minor signs of wear of the circumferential "red stripe".
Overall, a beautiful design classic and a valuable exhibit of Italian design / industrial history
