Beleos by Giulio Iacchetti for Bross: A table with legs with variable sections, an expression of outstanding woodworking skills

The collection of Beleos tables, designed by Giulio Iacchetti for Bross and initially presented in 2017, today acquires a new image through original colors enabling them to adapt creatively to different settings.

The staple of the Beleos family of tables has always been the load-bearing structure, consisting of two metal profiles set parallel and united by cylindrical spacers forming a Y at either end. To these are attached legs, in solid Canaletto walnut or natural oak, stained or matt lacquered, tapering and splayed. Their variable section presents different prospects depending on the point of view and expresses Bross's interest in woodworking.

The Beleos collection, named after a Lombard term evoking the concept of the “founder of a family”, becomes expressed as  the decorative value of wood, skillfully  combined with prized materials. The metal crosspiece is available in a brushed or powder-coated bronze finish in a wide range of colors. The ellipsoidal table tops come in the sizes of 220, 260 and 300 cm long, with different finishes including crystal, revealing the elegant frame that gave rise to the project.

At a glance

What is it?
Beleos is a collection of tables for the residential and contract sectors.
What is the design concept?
The collection developed out of the studies of the base: four tapering wooden legs and the metal frame. Their intersection ensures its stability and expresses the collection’s identity.  
How is it made?
The structure has legs in solid Canaletto walnut or natural oak, stained or matt lacquered, joined by a frame made up of two coupled metal profiles, with a matt bronze or matt painted finish. The table top is in oak, Canaletto walnut or extra-clear crystal.  
How is it produced and where?
All the wooden parts and the related finishing operations are handcrafted by Bross at its facility at Moimacco, in the province of Udine. The metal frame and the top, in the extra-clear glass version, are produced by external suppliers.
How is it manufactured?
The table is fully handcrafted. Its various parts have to be made by highly specialized personnel. 
What makes it special?
The unusual combination of metal and wood in the structure. Beleos is embodied in extremely slender metal elements and the rounded profiles of both the legs and the frame.
What is it like?
Versatile, light, architectural.
