Pierluigi Giordani Rare Constructivist Coffee Table in Wood & Glass, Italy 1950s

US$18,500

About

Pierluigi Giordani, (1924-2011) A remarkable geometric coffee table by Pierluigi Giordani, the master Bolognese architect and designer. A graphic, elongated pear wood base of singular vitality cleaves from an X-shaped center. The flexion points dogleg so the angles play off each other and build to an arresting equipoise, like a constructivist sculpture. The faceted points of the arms are beautifully offset from the slanted legs they mirror; they support a rectangular glass top, delicately inset on brass rivets. The dramatically tapering feet culminate in brass sabots. A sought-after contemporary of Carlo Mollino, Gio Ponti, and Ico Parisi, Giordani limited his production mostly to private commissions so as not to compromise his avant-garde vision, and refused to replicate on an industrial scale his vividly imagined, radically engineered, and painstakingly handcrafted works. Unique piece. Italy, 1950s. Measures: 19.5" H x 50" L x 21" W.
