Sir Vito is a multi-purpose small table. Rounded shapes and variable height are the main features, as well as a small extractable tray it can be equipped with. The surface of the top, supported by an asymmetrical four-spoke die-cast aluminium base, gently flexes into the front of the tray, creating a naturally fluid form. The uniformity of the curve is also guaranteed by the movement of the tray, which is revealed by revolving on itself. The shaft conceals a convenient piston mechanism regulated by a ring nut that makes it easy to choose the height. This small detail expands the functions and uses of Sir Vito, which is suitable for any room, from the bedroom to the living room to the office, equally useful for placing a laptop, a book or a cocktail. Sir Vito is available in three versions. The first has a top and tray in ebony-stained frisé maple, a finish that enhances the nature of the wood by emphasising the grain and enhancing the perception of the precious nature of the material, with a structure in a bronzed nickel finish. The second features a single-colour painted top, tray and frame in different satin shades. The third combines the verve of the satin colours with the elegance of the bronzed nickel structure.

Founded in 1980, Studio Kairos operates mainly in the field of industrial design and development, as well as architecture and furniture. The inspiration of the projects is stated right from the name: in classical Greek Kairos means right point, right place, right time, right measure. In ancient Greece it was also the concept that defined the manner of operating, of designing.
Kairos was, for instance, the choice of the right place for the construction of a house and, at the same time, the waiting for the right moment to do the works; this balanced combination of place and time guaranteed the right measure, the good result. The studio is formed by Giuseppe Manente and Abramo Mion. Giuseppe Manente was born in Mestre (Venice) in 1947. After having attended the higher course of industrial design, he obtained the architecture degree at Venice university. Since 1973 he has been practising architecture, operating in the civil and industrial construction field for public and private institutions. Abramo Mion was born in Mirano (Venice) in 1951. He attended the engineering faculty at Padova University, and then in the architecture faculty of Venice University. He became part of the design staff of a furniture industry and has since then been concerned with interior architecture.
Studio Kairos collaborates with leading companies and institutions and has received many prestigious awards, including the Compasso d'Oro for the Sisamo wardrobe by B&B Italia (1984).
