4×4 by Giulio Manzoni – Winner of the Red Dot Design Award
With its one-of-a-kind opening mechanism, the 4×4 table by Giulio Manzoni for Ozzio Italia is a key piece into our future living and design needs. This beautiful extendable table allows the consumer to easily accommodate from 6-12 people by adding the span of a hand (as explained in the video) to each direction of the table. The concept, while simple, requires an intricate approach and careful attention to detail in order to be executed to perfection. As you will see in the video, a large part of the elegance and ease of the table comes from the production by Ozzio Italia. Each hinge, each wooden slab, is produced carefully to accommodate the delicate design.
As the metropolitan population constantly grows and changes, contemporary design has found a way to advance alongside it. The concept of space saving solutions is slowly evolving into a necessity for many individuals. The needs of those individuals have to be anticipated with creative design such as the 4×4 table. The 4×4 addresses the concept of how do we fit our entire family that comes together each weekend, each month, or each year – all the while, having a home without a large or bulky piece of furniture in the way of day-to-day activities.
In 2016, the table was awarded with the prestigious Red Dot Design Award 2016 in the Product Design Category with the following reasons:
“The new table 4X4 presents an exclusive opening system. The product changes its shape and outlook because of the extensions that, once opened, cross the veins of top and give an elegant leitmotif. Metal frame extendable dining table with wooden top and extensions, metal sliding mechanism.”
The 4×4 is currently on display at our MiMo Showroom, 5084 Biscayne Blvd., Suite 102, Miami, FL 33137.
