name: Nomos table
designer: Norman Foster
manufacturer: Tecno, Italy
design year: 1986

The Nomos Table, developed for Italian furniture manufacturer Tecno, is characterised by its splayed metal legs, angled from a central spine, as if poised for flight. Some critics have suggested references to the lunar landing module; another image is the grasshopper with its slim body and gangly legs.” -text: fosterandpartners.

The frame of the Nomos table is conceived as a rigid, zoomorphic skeleton. … The Nomos table’s striking appearance and refined design have made it one of the most recognisable products of international design in the Tecno catalogue.” -text: Tecnospa.

Structural Expressionism = High Tech, came after Space Age at the end of the seventies, early 1980s, but before Post-Modernism;

This came with a damaged round glass top which was unusable. We had this square smoked glass top in storage which fits, but is not original, which you don’t have to take but the price remains the same with or without. We can order a NEW glass top for you, additional price: estimated:  € 1250,-  This top does have some scratches (see photo) and very minor chips.
