The Decumano range includes a series of executive and meeting tables, with fixed and adjustable height, rectangular, square and round in different sizes, in sleek finishes (black, grey, champagne and brick red) that offer creative options for enhancing the joint detail. The requirement was for a table that could stand by itself and also seamlessly integrate with all the Fantoni collections, fitting into different layouts, ranging from a ‘managerial’ style to more meeting-oriented.

“When we sketched it, the frame of Decumano was already there, in that simple design of a perpendicular intersection of lightweight beams that support the top, and that together create a quadrilateral that metaphorically recalls the layout of Roman cities (the cardo and the decumanus), the basis of the western world”.

The choice of name reflects this: an intersection that creates a solid structure conveying solidity and simplicity, characteristics that align with the world of Fantoni and its production and design experience.
