Large dining table, solid pine, Spain, 1950s

This remarkable table holds a strong expression due to several aspects that are all typical for Spanish Midcentury design. First the use of solid pine wood holds a rural and robust aesthetic. Secondly, the design is constructed out of basic, elemental shapes such as the circle and cross. The table has an open look and is structurally supported by means of a horizontal beam. The wood structure has a beautiful grain. Very well made, great wood joints are visible. Measures: 5.6ft / 170cm.
