Photograph of the Forte table designed by Lella Vignelli and Massimo Vignelli for Bernini in 1991.

Text from design: Vignelli exhibition label:
Forte Table; Bernini, Italy 1991.
Usually a dining table stands in the middle of a dining room, alone and naked for the whole day, waiting for dinner time. We wanted to design a table that could stand in a room, and with its own presence dominate the space around, just like a fort. Hence its name.
