Castore is a glass and marble table by Italian architect, sculptor and designer Angelo Mangiarotti. Designed in 1975 for Sorgente dei Mobili, the distinct design is now presented by Karakter, available as a 130cm dining table.
The round glass top rests on a heavy marble pillar, and visually, Mangiarotti would have it seem that only a small marble bowl on top of the glass plate is holding it in place. The rounded corners on both the pillar and the bowl ads a sense of softness to the otherwise heavy aesthetics of the marble.
The marble bowl can be removed and used as an individual element. However, keeping it as an integral part of the design, you can enjoy additional rounded corners, as the bowl reflects in the glass table top.
