Slot Tables by Bonaldo

A slit or narrow opening for receiving something, as a coin or letter.

In computerized slot machines, a slot is a compartment that accepts cash or, in “ticket-in, ticket-out” machines, a paper ticket with a barcode. The machine then activates reels that can rearrange symbols and award credits based on the paytable. The symbols vary according to the game’s theme. Some classic symbols include fruits, bells, and stylized lucky sevens. Many slot games have bonus features, such as free spins, re-spins, and sticky wilds.

Progressive jackpot slots have a built-in win condition, which is usually a specific amount (called the seed) or a percentage of the total staked across all the machines in the game. The value of the pot is increased each time a player buys into a game or plays a spin, and it is halted once a player wins the jackpot. A long-overdue jackpot has a higher chance of being won than one that was just won.

Giuseppe Vigano’s homonymous collection for Bonaldo includes the Slot console table and coffee table, which exemplify the formal research and technological innovation that have always underpinned his work. The pieces articulate geometric forms in space, bringing together a balance of solid and void with an aesthetic that is rigorous yet refined. The Slot collection also includes two benches and a bookcase. The table’s legs are crafted from anodized aluminium, while the top is smoked tempered glass. The Slot is available with a black or white base.
