The Piloti series takes its name from the pillars or columns that raise a building above the ground. The collection offers marble coffee tables, as well as a solid oak variant.
The idea behind the design of the Piloti tables is that they appear as a thin line floating in space, in order to create a contrast between their apparent lightness and the robustness of the materials used. Indeed, the structure of the Piloti table is made of steel and its marble top, making each piece unique thanks to the subtle differences in patterns and tones inherent in this material.

Hugo Passos opened his own design studio in 2012 after having worked as a design assistant at Fredrikson Stallard. The London-based designer’s approach to design is to create objects that are both familiar and enjoyable in form and use. Without disregarding the artistic potential of design, Passos stays true to his view that designs must first and foremost serve their purpose and “do what they’re supposed to”. His products for Monocle magazine as well as other works have been featured at SaloneSatellite in Milan and the London Design Festival. The Piloti tables are Passos’ first collaboration with Fredericia.
