The design marks Magistretti's collaboration with the Azucena Group (founded in 1947). The birch plywood and mahogany stackable tables were displayed at the 8th Triennale Furniture Expo. The tables are simple and clean-cut and they were designed together with a bookcase displayed in "Il Mobile Singolo" exhibition, organized by Fede Cheti in 1949. They were later re-edited by Cassina (Table 764) in 1965. The tables were also displayed in the section arranged and set up by Vico Magistretti, Luigi Caccia Dominioni, Carlo Casati, Ignazio Gardella and Mario Righini at the 10th edition of the Triennale, to show the decorating option only using mass-produced furniture, Italian and foreign. The project for Azucena of stackable T8 tables is taken up again and put into production by Cassina in 1965.
