Rare Tapio Wirkkala Sculptural Coffee Table

About

Designed for Asko, Finland in 1958. These tables are highly sought after and regarded as Tapio Wirkkala's most important production furniture. Made from hand-sculpted solid elmwood in four parts. Each quadrant is the exact same form which combines into this organic zoomorphic form. These tables were all handmade and only produced in very few numbers. This example in exceptional original condition and untouched. Even retaining the original glass mountings which rarely survive. A true example of useable sculpture. A rare opportunity to purchase a true icon and piece of great importance in terms of Modern Scandinavian Design.
