Bisazza Featured Designer: Andreé Putman-a French design icon.

The Zenith and Correspondances tables, designed by Putman, reveal their classic identity through a contemporary look.

A light source, coming from the gold mosaic, is the element of seduction in Zenith, the round table produced in corian and proposed in two color versions: white corian with yellow gold mosaic and grey corian with white gold mosaic.

For Correspondances, the lacquered wooden writing desk available in four color versions, the predominant decorative motif is alternating mosaic tiles, each model featuring two contrasting colors: black and white, blue and white, black and grey, each with a single gold tile “set” into the surface. The original arrangement of two overlapping surfaces gives movement and versatility to this item of furniture.

New Bisazza Pattern Designs by Andrée Putman


Using a simple decorative element which, repeated and alternated, reminds one of the keyboard of a piano, this refined pattern conveys rhythm and movement.

Designed by Putman, this pattern is available in three color variations: Alternance Bleue, Alternance Grise, and Alternance Noir & Blanc


This design is created with small squares in classic chromatic tones, which overlap to form the contemporary optical effect of a double chessboard.
