Milan-based designer Daniele Ragazzo has produced a table with a circular glass tabletop supported by thin stainless-steel legs that resemble upturned ball-headed sewing pins.
The legs of the Liaison Table are created of hand-polished stainless steel and are stored in spot with ultraviolet curing glue – an adhesive that sets immediately when exposed to ultraviolet light.
The coloured balls at the base of each assistance are manufactured of powder-coated steel. Collectively, the legs search like an assortment of pins utilized to hold fabric in place before sewing.
The pins are angled slightly in diverse directions to generate a reliable framework for supporting a 15-millimetre pane of glass.

“The idea came from my desk,” Ragazzo told Dezeen. “I employed to have a rubber with some coloured pins caught into it. I utilised to perform with it and one day I realised that it could stand flawlessly and looked like a little table.”
“It was something I had in front of my eyes every single day when I lived in Turin,” he additional. “Then I moved to Milan, and one day that image came into my mind from nowhere.”
Developed for every day use, the table comes with a bigger rectangular prime or a smaller circular surface that needs less pins.
“I picture it in huge living spaces and it is structured to enable men and women to be seated around it comfortably,” mentioned Ragazzo. “Nonetheless, it is not a table you can move usually due to the fact of its weight and its balancing logic.”
Nine restricted-edition Liaison Tables are available to acquire from the Spazio Rossana Orlandi gallery in Milan and the patterns can also be made to buy in any size or shape.
