Jean Claude Dresse, pair of coffee or side tables, resin, Belgium, circa. 1970

These eccentric coffee tables are a design by the hand of Belgian designer Jean Claude Dresse. Observing the pieces now, every inch truly showcases the magnificent craftsmanship and quality of the work of Dresse. The square shaped table top displays a dynamic play of flowing lines that are etched into the off-white resin. The tables have an almost monumental appearance due to the architecturally constructed legs that lift the top up in a vigorous manner. Due to the artistic use of the material and texture combinations, the coffee tables have a strong decorative character and hits the border between piece of art and furniture design.

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.
