Martino Zanotta visits the California Academy of Sciences

During Martino Zanotta's trip to San Francisco, he visited the California Academy of Sciences where DZINE had placed the Cumano table from Zanotta.

The Cumano table was designed by Achille Castiglioni in 1978. He was inspired by the archetype models of folding ironing tables for outdoor use which date back to the late 1800. In redesigning this table, Castiglioni concentrates his attention on the particulars and details, to improve and exalt the product’s functionality.

The outdoor table consists of an enamelled metal top that is supported by three steel rods. A rotating joint moves the legs so that the table may be folded flat. After folding, it can be put away or hung up on the wall with a specially designed wall peg that comes with the table.
