Jules Wabbes Large Coffee Table in Wengé

$48,600

About

Jules Wabbes, extra large and costum-made coffee table, wengé, steel, brass, Belgium, 1970s Jules Wabbes designed this costum-made, large coffee table in the 1970s. A black metal base with golden feet lifts up the wengé top. The thick top shows a beautiful grain and adds a luxurious, natural touch. With its lenght of more than two meters the table has an exceptional size. Jules Wabbes (1919-1974) was a Belgian furniture designer, architect and professor. He wasn't (as many of his contemporaries) trained as a designer or architect but learned the Craft of designer furniture by sheer necessity. When Wabbes was 24, he opened an antiques shop where some of the furniture was in need of restoration. Therefore, he opened a small workshop where he taught himself how to restore furniture. Alongside restoration he also started to design furniture. His work is aristocratic and modest, and characterised by a sensual use of materials and a clear, almost architectural tectonics. Wabbes developed a line and idiom of its own, averse to the playful and swinging style of many other furniture designs of the post-war period. Wabbes, influenced by American designers such as Edward Wormley, chose to build his furniture with solid wood giving his designs not only a luxurious appearance but also honest, timeless and sophisticated aesthetics.
