Branzi’s small table, like the Animali Domestici Collection, is given a personality. It’s organic shape and legs, far from being features of abstract geometry, could belong to some hitherto undiscovered bird species. It’s gradations of colour and the tactile quality of it’s mixture of hard and soft materials reinforce the idea.
