Modular dining set

Thought I'd post something, since the forum has been quiet for a while. Too much social distancing, I think.
Saw this on the 1stdibs.com web site the other day. It's a modular dining set by the noted designer Leila Vignelli, created in the mid-sixties. The original is made of lacquered wood, and the cushions are covered in cognac leather.
Vignelli, and her husband Massimo, are two of my favorite designers. Among many other things, they designed a route map for the New York City subways, which was widely criticized. But I always liked it.
Enjoy.

thanks David for this (again!) beautiful work :thumb: The designer was unknown to me so far. Interesting is your marginal note about this NY Subway Map. I will google about this in any case :D
And yes, this so strange time is not good for us all ...
Best and I hope you are fine !!

Besides the notorious subway map and a slew of furniture, the Vignellis also designed a line of stacking plastic dinnerware for Heller. You'll recognize it.

Cool cup design, but I just don't see that stacking ability. Very nice job on the dinette table.

They don't nest very deeply. There's a sort of rabbet around the bottom that creates a foot which just fits inside the cup below it.

By the way, nice work on those, David.
