Reinventing tradition with a contemporary twist.
Italian furniture brand Madea Milano launched its first collection in 2018, during Milan Design Week. The range portrayed the company’s slogans “Color revolution” and “Transparent is the new color” perfectly. With the new Hac oval collection, the brand continues to push boundaries and to explore new ways in which to bring different worlds together. More specifically, it aims to redefine and reinvent traditional ideas through the lens of contemporary design.
Using methacrylate as a foundation, Madea Milano creates unconventional material pairings that blend classic and modern elements in refined pieces of furniture. At the same time, the brand puts an emphasis on traditional craftsmanship to make every product one of a kind. Thus, the concept of #handmadeplastic took shape. The Hac oval tables combine methacrylate with one of the most powerful symbols of Italian design: marble. A bridge between tradition and modernity, the coffee tables also create a play between the solidity and sturdiness of natural stone on one hand and transparency on the other.
The user-friendly design allows the quick assembly of the tables, without the need for tools. Milling across the edge of the upper ring makes attaching the legs as easy as possible. Dedicated to perfection, the brand finishes each table by hand with a diamond tool technique. That way, the methacrylate can surpass glass in transparency and complement the textured marble with its crystal-clear surface. The collection includes a range of oval tables. They’re available in clear or clear and smoky gray, with White Carrara, Green Alps, or Gray Carnico marble tops. A natural evolution of Italian design that pays homage to its roots.
