Tavolo “Babele“ [Table “Babele”] (1969)
This project series documents the "Babele" Tavolo, a table design by Pettena in 1967 and produced in 1968 by Gufram, an Italian seat and furniture manufacturer based in Barolo. "A sculpture that has become a stand for objects: it consists of a tree (with a marble base and metal trunk) whose leaf-shelves in lacquered wood can be placed in any position."  The table was designed in the context of designing furnishings for Pettena's studio-home in Florence.
The project series contains a sketch showing different configurations of the table and its components, drawings, photographs and project descriptions in Italian and in English.
