The IOI Coffee Tables by GamFratesi are a celebration of Italian materiality, featuring solid brass and gray Emperador and white Carrara marble. The use of marble anticipates a growing desire for the honesty and authenticity of organic materials. The careful selection of colors and textures keeps its materiality alive in the final design and individual stones are chosen for their veining and striations, giving each table a unique expression of its own.
Drawing on geometric Art Deco references with a contemporary design language, the collection explores the empty space between the physical form as much as the form itself. The IOI Coffee Tables share a common ‘sticks and sphere’ motif, reflected in the shape of the letters that form their name, pronounced ‘i-o-i.’
