The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design awarded the Delta table, designed by Fabrice Berrux for Bonaldo, with the Good Design Award 2019 in the "Furniture" category, chosing among the candidacies from 47 countries.

Now at its 69th edition, every year the GOOD DESIGN® awards the excellence of design worldwide, assessing products according to criteria of shape, innovation, materials and concepts. The GOOD DESIGN® winners will be included in the GOOD DESIGN® Yearbook for 2019-2020.

Delta is a statuary table with a smooth and essential elegance, whose distinguishing feature is its frame, with the ceramic or wooden top emphasising its sculptural appearance.

Fabrice Berrux drew his inspiration from the abstract and informal work of Spanish artist Antoni Tàpies to design the Delta table; it is precisely in the atelier of the Spanish painter that the designer noticed a small statue with a bronze frame and empty in the middle. This is how he came up with a table with a simple shape that conceals an impeccable design study, which is evident in the legs: indeed, they split in two just before the table top, creating empty spaces that make the frame light-weight and outline an elegant linear profile.
