The Office Table of Giotto Stoppino, known as the Maia Bureau, is a collector's item because it is such a rare piece of art. Conceived in 1969, the design is simply magnificent. Being a modernist, Stoppino favoured curves in his designs. Rare rosewood is used for the table, which include a sliding tray shaped as a 3/4 circle. It has rounded corners and the supports are of curved metal. Different colours and models are available, but all favour practicality. A chair and a table are included in this set. It reflects old styles of tables with its ease and lightness. Some models also include a compartment under the table.
Giotto Stoppino's Office Table is considered a revolutionary design.
