Brutalist Coffee Table in Cast Iron and Glass 1970s
Coffee table, cast iron and glass, Belgium, 1970s.
The table has a well sized glass top and a lower top suitable for keeping magazines. The sincere, rough surface of the sand cast piece has a beautiful resin like structure with nicely contrasting shades of black and bright iron. The top shows a nice decorative pattern, figuring an abstracted butterfly which is positioned asymmetrically. The base is sturdy yet elegant, due to the outwards angled legs and relatively thin lower top. The table most likely is a one-off, which makes it even more special.
