Gong - Acerbis
Year
1987 – 2021
Designer

Emblematic of the rigorous designs of Gianfranco Frattini, the Gong side table reemerges with his quintessential grace and flair of form, now in diverse heights and diameters — a family of proportions for sculptures, plants, and other decor.

The two metal disks of different widths, one for the base and the other for the slightly concave top, are joined by a hexagonal stand through small metal spools.

Gong entirely painted in gunmetal or an orbital bronze finish. The stand is in brushed brass for the two-coloured version and sharply contrasts with the two finishes.

Video by Lorenzo Gironi

A video directed by Lorenzo Gironi, shot entirely on film, in which seven products, integral part of the Acerbis’ heritage, reemerge under a new light. A game, a succession of unprecedented contaminations, suggestions, sounds, oppositions and unions.

Finishes

The side tables are entirely painted in gunmetal or an orbital bronze finish. The stand is in brushed brass for the two-coloured version and sharply contrasts with the two finishes.
