Thick multilayer wood, lacquered in glossy polyester structure, iron corner pieces. 

By rotating the table ends, which were then coupled and attached to each other, Scarpa turned Orseolo into an absolute masterpiece, an unequalled model of formal beauty. Stability, a streamlined shape, an elegant and lighter profile are the result of Scarpa’s exceptional intuition.
