Divan table Gerrit Rietveld perspex reproductionSold
Divan table Gerrit Rietveld reproduction in perspex
name: Divan table
designer: Gerrit Rietveld
design year: 1923
This is more a sculpture pretending to be a table than a sculptural table.
The great man had publicized his drawings and plans in magazines and books and every handymen in the Netherlands has set to. Maker unknown. The original is in the Centraal Museum Utrecht or the Schroeder house. This table has nothing to do with the good man except that it is made and colored according to his instructions. Reproduction, fake, imitation, your choice.
This is a unique object, an international design classic reproduced in perspex / plexiglass! This table dates from the 1990s, and has signs of wear, scuffs and nicks as well as patina. Like every other Divan table in the world this one leans forward a bit. Historically accurate down to the tilt!
dimensions: 51 x 51 x 62 H cm
