The coffee table is characterised by a slight vibration of the top reminiscent of the typical Italian dessert, from which it takes its name.
In its outdoor guise, Panna Cotta features a stainless-steel frame with a perforated top, supporting a base in Lava Stone. The vitreous inserts of the Etna lava stone, used for the oven-baked enamelling of the surfaces, come from the crushing of recycled glass from TV and PC monitors. The coffee table is available in anthracite, olive green and desert yellow is available in two rounded tops.
Ron Gilad was born in Tel Aviv in 1972. After a few years in New York, he lives and works in Tel Aviv and Milan. Ron Gilad’s hybrid objects combine a practical ingenuity with an aesthetic effect which and are placed on a boundary between the abstract and functional. When he was asked to collaborate with Molteni&C, Ron Gilad initially wondered if he should behave as a designer or just be himself in the most authentic way. He found his answer by creating a connection between his more abstract and artistic ideas and commercial industry mechanisms and converting them into ingenious design products.complete biography
