Sale price$64,500.00

Jean Claude Dresse, coffee table, stainless steel, lacquered steel, Belgium, circa 1975

Enchanting coffee table designed by Belgian artist Jean Claude Dresse in the mid-70s. This rectangular table with rounded contours is easily recognizable as a design by Dresse, displaying high attention for detail and meticulous handiwork. Departing from its unusual use of stainless steel, Dresse created a table that sets itself apart within its oeuvre as most of these mosaic tables by Dresse are executed in brass. The different abstract forms are hand-hammered and diverge as flowing water, resulting in a magical and whimsy composition with a luxurious touch. The base is composed of rectangular-shaped clustered feet in black, forming an architectural appearance. The side of the top is signed stating "Dresse".

Jean Claude Dresse (1946-) is a Belgian artist and designer. He graduated from the art academy in Charleroi. His background of being a visual artist is clearly visible in his furniture designs as he uses artistic techniques such as mosaic and etchings. His oeuvre embodies designs made of precious metals such as brass and copper. Together with his father Marcel, he was a prominent figure in the furniture business in the 1980s and belonged to the artistic Walloon School that focused on glamorous aesthetics. After he and his father were successful as designers Jean Claude embarked on a career as a visual artist. Dresse designed many furniture pieces on commission, which means that a large part of these items is custom-made.
