Giulio Alchini, born near Trento in 1926, is the heir of a family tradition of cabinetmakers. He studies in Venice at Scuola d’Arte dei Carmini. Influenced by Henry Moore and Le Corbousier, De Stijl and Piet Mondrian. He divides his research between architecture, scenography and design; painting and sculpture. He presents a side table at Biennale’s decorative art pavillion in 1950. His brilliant carreer is abruptly stopped by his death, in 1958, before he would turn 32.
Condition report: the table has been professionally restored: woodworms has been eradicated and its holes have been filled, new glue was applied to the joints, and the whole wooden structure has been refinished. The formica top is original and in very good conditions, with minimal wear such as light scratches, the color is still strong and uniform.
