A number of years ago Dwell magazine’s design team infused gradient coloring into the logo of a few issues. In editorial, I tackled the reader emails—the logo experimentation created quite the fervor. In this piece, however, the gradual color shift gleams on the bent wood Gola Table by Gianluca Sgalippa for Enzyma.

Apply a Gradient Fill to Furniture in Your Home with the Gola Table by Gianluca Sgalippa for Enzyma.
Whether this Italian-made table was inspired by a U.S.-based magazine logo or perhaps the early ‘paint can fill’ from 1990s software, the Gola Table comes in your choice of pantone color. Blending this color from fully saturated to white, Enzyma and Sgalippa formed a number of furniture models that include cabinets, tables, sideboards, carpets, etc. The table itself uses two asymmetrical wings of bent wood with an opening in its center that shows off the deepest color (here, seen in dark purple).
In order to achieve the unique coloring, the sophisticated gradient color effect - or dégradé as they call it - is created through digital printing on laminate. With the movement of color, this piece of multilayer sheet wood and steel furniture is customizable, not to mention stylish. It comes in a table version or a console version, which can be coordinated together in a room for the full effect. In the full table version, it comes in a 91”L x 32”W x 29”H with a thickness of 3 cm.
Whether you’re a huge fan of the gradient or a nonbeliever, all can appreciate the technology and radiant look of the Gola’s color-fading appearance by Gianluca Sgalippa for Enzyma.
