Jean Claude Dresse, coffee table, resin, steel and agate, Belgium, 1970s
This luxurious and artistic resin coffee table is a design by the hand of Belgian designer Jean Claude Dresse. The table consists of a resin tabletop, resting on metal feet. The oval shaped table top is finished with a naturalistic relief and inlayed with large pieces of agate stones framed by brass. The organic lines in the resin are drawn by Dresse and etched afterwards. A piece that finds itself between the borders of furniture design and art.
