About

Sculptural 'Slangentisch' (Snake table) coffee table by Knut Hesterberg for Ronald Schmitt. This table would be a chic alternative to Knut's "Propeller" coffee table and is comprised of an organic cast aluminum base reminiscent of the infinity symbol topped with a circular piece of glass. This weighty, substantial base with its sleek, sinuous curves could be displayed solely as an abstract art piece. This iconic cocktail table would be a great addition as part of a classic, contemporary or mid-century modern living room, den, man (or woman!) cave, family room, office or bedroom. It would also be an apt choice in a corporate, retail or hospitality location such as a boutique hotel lobby, cocktail bar, members club, workspace studio, executive office or in a luxe clothing emporium. Measurements: 15.75" height x 38" diameter Base only measurements: 15" H x 27.25" W 24" D Good vintage condition. Some light scratching to the glass. Signs of use commensurate with age are evident.
