Tense 30 Years Collection

by Piergiorgio Cazzaniga

Designed by Piergiorgio and Michele Cazzaniga in 2009, the Tense represents the archetypal table. Characterized by the consistency of its form and finishes, it is an icon of lightness and flexibility; thanks to its internal tension, it can also be extended to a total of 4 meters in length. Part of the MDF Italia collection, the Tense family is now available in 16 finishes, 5 heights and 36 sizes. For The Principle of Lightness Collection, the Tense has been reimagined in a hand polished aluminum finish and measures 100x240cm. The glossy brushed finish on the top is accomplished using specialized flat machine that uses motorized brush style conveyor belts that polish the external surface and then manually resumed for the final finishing phase. The legs, on the other hand, are brushed and polished manually using specialized rotary machines and abrasive/polishing pastes. Once assembled, the table appears to have a mono-material finish, as if it were the result of a single aluminum casting. An interplay of light reflections gives the table depth and beauty, enhancing it’s pure, simple shapes.
