Jean Claude Dresse Steel and Brass Coffee Table with Inlayed Agate

About

Jean Claude Dresse, coffee table, brushed stainless steel, brass and agate, Belgium, circa 1970 This extraordinary piece was crafted with great eye for proportions and detail, typical for the work of Dresse. The combination of materials, steel, brass and agate, have a luxurious character that emphasizes the rich appearance. Also the composition of the materials used for the tabletop is very artistic and naturalistic. The tabletop has a beautiful, detailed mosaic of inlayed stainless steel. The use of an almost architectural base in brushed metal makes the tabletop float in a way, which gives this heavy and sturdy table an interesting lightness. The table, almost a sculpture itself, is signed on the side of the table’s top. Jean Claude Dresse (1946) is a Belgian artist and designer. He graduated from the art academy in Charleroi. His interest in the visual artist is clearly visible in his furniture designs as he uses artistic techniques such as mosaic and etchings. He makes use of precious metals such as brass and copper. Together with his father he was a prominent figure in the furniture business in the 1980s and he belongs to the artistic Walloon school that focussed on glamorous esthetics. When his father died and the market was more difficult, he could not continue to make the furniture on his own so he became a visual artist. In the 1970s a trend of decorative arts arised in Brussels. Key-designers were Aldo Chale, Georges Mathias, Willy Daro and Lova Creation. Their style was characterized by the use of gemstones as decorative element and the use of gold as primary color. The classical technique of etching was highly applied on their designs for coffee and cocktail tables.
