The curved glass coffee table is a functional work of art. The graceful, contoured single glass pane balances on a white ball. The white enamel paint is original, several decades old. It is no longer pure white, but rather a warm “antiqued” white. An aluminum cap secures the union between the glass and ball. The distinctly modern coffee table is deeply influenced by the Bauhaus. The acute mastery of form, surface and space make this table a triumph of design. The open airy feel is especially appropriate for coastal homes and spaces that need to “lighten up.” The coffee table is physically large but visually light.
