An icon of formal purity designed in 1985 by Lella and Massimo Vignelli and now re-released by Poltrona Frau. The Mesa table is formed by combining two simple geometric shapes, a circle and a cone. The result is a strong and tangible, almost sculptural table, but with a lightness that comes from the simplicity of the design.
The Mesa table has a Ligurian slate top which, thanks to the traditional splitting technique, maintains the rock’s natural grooves and lines on the surface. A lower shelf in burnished steel sheet metal provides further stability and resistance. The load bearing column is in grey pietra serena with a plastic shaped tip inserted in the base. The joint between the top and the column is made of tubular burnished steel to which a three-bracket joint plate is attached so it is possible to alter the position of the top.

Poltrona Frau is a furniture-maker founded in 1912 by Sardinian-born Renzo Frau in Turin, Italy, headquartered since the early 1960s in Tolentino, Italy and specializing in leather seating for interior and automotive applications. The company name combines the Italian word for armchair, "Poltrona" and "Frau, the last name of its founder.
Noted for their exhaustive quality standards, the company uses a 21-step leather tanning process where the full-grain leather is dyed through, so a surface scratch won’t reveal a lining underneath. 95% of the company's products are made by hand.
In 2004, Poltrona Frau acquired noted Italian furniture company Cappellini, and the Poltrona Frau Group now includes brands Poltrona Frau, Cappellini, Cassina, Alias, Nemo Lighting, Ceramica Flaminia and Fish Design
