Ignazio Gardella’s Blevio table joins Molteni&C’s Heritage Collection, inaugurating a partnership with the Gardella Historical Archive: the first episode of a relationship based on research and exchange, destined to develop over the years to come. In 2015 Milan’s Galleria d’Arte Moderna, restructured by Gardella himself, hosted the exhibition on Molteni&C’s 80 years in the furniture business.

スペック

Designed in 1930, Blevio is a table that Gardella (1905-1999) made as a single model for his own family home, Villa Usuelli in Blevio on Lake Como. It is an extraordinarily harmonious and timeless piece of furniture, which today becomes collective heritage; it combines the purest features and intrinsic simplicity. Gardella was already an established figure on the Italian architecture scene and in those same years he designed Alessandria’s Vittorio Emanuele III Sanatorium (1928- 1938) with its rationalist chapel, the Hygiene and Prophylaxis Laboratory (1933-1938) and the Antituberculosis Dispensary (1933-1938).

Elegant and geometrically linear, the Blevio table is rich in design, in details that reveal themselves to the attentive eye. It is the result of a process that removed the superfluous, of the perfect synthesis between form and function, of the careful and selective use of the material that was to become its main aesthetic feature. It is a project that focuses on the essential and on the removal of decoration for decoration’s sake.

As an alternative to the 320x96 cm varnished wood top (dimensions), a slab of Breccia Capraia marble was examined; this was inserted into the aluminium surface, for a total thickness of 4 cm. In addition, under the supervision of the Gardella Historical Archive, the proportions of the original design were scaled to match the heights of contemporary dinner tables (h: 77 cm), thereby guaranteeing the respect of the original shape.

At Villa Usuelli, the table is related to richly decorated rooms, 19th century floorings and to the family’s antique furniture. Thus in that particular context, the formal but sculptural simplicity of the Blevio table can create a dialogue with the surrounding rooms and with a variety of styles, demonstrating that it can be used transversally.

Ignazio Gardella

Ignazio Gardella was born on March 30th 1905 in Milan, he qualified in engineering in 1930, and started his profession in the engineering studio founded by his father Arnaldo, again in Milan. Right from the beginning of his long and prolific working life, he adhered to the expectations of rationalism. His main works of the 1930s include the enlargement of Villa Borletti in Milan (1936) and the anti-tuberculosis dispensary in Alessandria (1938). In 1949 he graduated in architecture at the Venice IUAV where, starting from 1950, he embarked on a university career, up until 1975.
