From design to product
Slender, elegant forms seem to be part of the identity of this young, talented designer from London, spotted very early on in his career by Zanotta. Twenty years after Less by Jean Nouvel, unanimously acclaimed as the ultimate, archetypal table owing its minimal, light and technological innovation, Damian Williamson tried to develop something similar, adaptable to every circumstance and with a minimum visual impact without forgoing the recognisable mark of the designer. His elegant solution, Spillo has an aluminium-alloy leg, both curved and solid at the same time, and a thin top finished with a sheet of tempered plate glass. Less minimal is the custom-designed ‘material’ version, which has an imperceptible layer of cement protected with an acrylic finish, which harmonises perfectly with more contemporary trends.
