Thought to furnish a large dining area or refined meeting room, Memo is a table characterized by minimalist discretion that defines Piero Lissoni’s style, Lema’s art director since 1995, and by large sizes. Available in two versions, 300×110 and 400×110 cm, is way from an ostentatious design frenzy and it is appealing for the balance and symmetry of the elements: the top in heat-treated oak or Lava stone and the metal structure.
The aesthetic research was in fact focused on materials and their expressive ability that overcomes any form of artifice.
