A rare masterpiece designed by the the groundbreaking fashion designer Pierre Cardin (1922 - 2020). Cardin was a world famous fashion designer, but also enjoyed great succes in the field of furniture design. Entitled "Eventail," which translates to "Fan," this table is a limited edition creation, with only a total of 80 pieces in existence. The specific table in question bears the number 12. The design embraces a metamorphic soul that marries both functionality and poetical composition. Through his manipulation of volumes and forms, Cardin was able to create pieces that fulfilled practical needs while retaining an eccentric and stylish allure. The table's construction features three leaves, each situated at a distinct height and capable of independent 360-degree rotation, hence the name "Fan." This design allows the user to create a cascade-like composition, imbuing the piece with a dynamic and visually captivating quality. Alternatively, the leaves can be concealed, resulting in a solid, cohesive entity. Crafted from mahogany, with its pronounced grains and rich hues gracing the surface, the table exudes a luxurious aesthetic. The piece bears the signature of Pierre Cardin, denoted as "Pierre Cardin. 12/80 ."
