Presenting a striking work of mid-century German Brutalist design, formed into an Etagere, or table shelf.
The form of this piece is an uncommon retelling of the popular Atomic design tiered plant tables created in Formica. The iconic characteristics of sharp and dramatically defined curves complimented by the triple threading carry echoes of great Modernist designers and sculptors such as Dame Barbara Hepworth.
The texture of the main structure is highly tactile with an effect reminiscent of indented metal created from the heating and striking of a hammer.
The stylised, eye-catching form piece makes this piece a rare find that can be displayed as a standalone piece or for functional use.
Excellent. Most notable wear are the mild age stains that are commensurable with the age of the piece. Please refer to photographs as they form part of the condition report.
