New shapes, new materials and finishes: there are many new products in the Bontempi Casa Living Collection 2021 arriving among tables, chairs and furnishing accessories, the result of our constant desire for renewal. Today we begin to reveal a few…

The Delta table

Often at the center of the scene, the tables play a leading role in the daily management of domestic spaces and represent an important focus in the production of Bontempi Casa. They are also protagonists among the novelties of 2021, with new designs and different iconic models ready to be renewed in shapes, materials and finishes. Among the new entries, today we reveal the Delta model, refined and versatile.

Its structure is characterized by geometric lines that take up the theme of the table with crossed legs, reinterpreting it with lightness and with precious details that underline its strong personality. In lacquered steel, it can be declined with different finishes ranging from antique brass to gold through black and white, matt or glossy. The Delta table then takes on different faces and can be inserted in any context depending on whether you choose the rectangular or barrel-shaped top in wood, crystal, SuperMarble or SuperCeramic: many possible variations as proof of its great versatility.

New finishes: pink gold and Sand and Savoy Gray SuperCeramic

Research on materials has always been one of the cornerstones of Bontempi Casa business, that over the years has developed innovative solutions to ensure optimal performance of its design. Among these is SuperCeramic, elevating the characteristics of traditional ceramic by combining maximum strength and inalterability with minimum thickness to create durable and functional tables.

Not only performance but also aesthetics: SuperCeramic satisfies the eye with a delicate texture that is also appreciated to the touch, and this year it is renewed with two new finishes to be applied to different tables in the Bontempi Casa catalog. Sabbia is a discreet and refined variant, while Savoia Gray recreates the effect of natural stone thanks to bush hammering, a particular process that gives the material an absolutely authentic look.

Obtained thanks to numerous experiments with color mixes, it is precious and delicate at the same time to be able to elegantly fit into any context. Its brightness enhances the shapes and discreetly emphasizes the details of the structures.
