The Chiglia table by Marmo Arredo wins the Archiproducts Design Awards 2023

The Chiglia table, designed by Stefano Boeri Interiors for Marmo Arredo, wins the Archiproducts Design Awards 2023, taking first place in the Furniture category, Tables ad Chairs section. 

Testimony to Marmo Arredo's commitment to creating high quality, elegant, functional and sustainable furniture, the Chiglia table is an expression of craftsmanship and contemporary design

"We are very proud of this recognition," said Marco Scapin, Art Director of Marmo Arredo. "The Chiglia table is a product that best represents our design philosophy: to combine aesthetics and functionality, using valuable and sustainable materials. We are happy that the Archiproducts Design Awards jury appreciated our choices".


An international competition for design excellence 

The Archiproducts Design Awards 2023 is an international competition celebrating design excellence on a global level. The awards, divided into 26 categories, cover all categories of design, from furniture to lighting, from contract to building. The jury, made up of a group of industry experts from around the world, assesses products based on several criteria, including innovation, functionality, aesthetics and sustainability.


A strong aesthetic impact 

Essential, elegant and modern, the Chiglia table is characterised by its strong aesthetic impact. Its sleek lines, clean silhouette and fine materials make it a versatile furnishing solution that fits into any residential or commercial environment. 

The tabletop can be made of Quartzforms®, Ecotone™ or natural stone, offering a surface that exudes beauty and sophistication. The structure of the top, in extra-clear glass, is inspired by the characteristic shape of a boat's keel, in a play of joints that responds to a conscious search for balance. The top thus appears to be suspended without gravity.


Innovative construction technique 

In addition to the extra-clear glass frame, the Chiglia table is also available in a mono-material version, with the base in the same finish as the top, again with a choice of Quartzforms® quartz, Ecotone™ slabs or various marbles. 

All components of the Chiglia table are designed to fit together without the use of adhesives. In fact, the individual components fit together perfectly, creating a cohesive and structurally sound piece. 

The Chiglia table is available in different sizes (150x100 cm, 210x100 cm and 270x100 cm) and finishes that guarantee a distinct freedom of expression.
