A tad of a table and a bit of a stool, Betulla is the accent piece cleverly designed by Vico Magistretti. It’s eclectic, versatile and adaptable: you can even place a cushion on the table top supported by shiny chromed steel. It’s just what you need whenever you need it, and its design is an expression of timeless elegance.
BASE: polished chromium-plated steel. Thermoplastic feet.
TOP: moulded beech plywood, veneered in smoked oak, finished with transparent water-based or solvent-based coating.
CUSHION (optional): memory foam and polyester wadding, covered with light polyester velvet.
Only for the UK market the components in memory foam are made of polyurethane foam.
EXTERNAL COVER: removable cover in fabric or leathe
