Triangular table with 'broken glass' top,
Attributed to Shiro Kuramata, Italy, 1980s
Shiro Kuramata (1934 - 1991) was a highly influential Japanese designer of the 20th century, known for his close collaboration with the Memphis group movement and his design of vitrines for Issey Miyake in Paris, New York, and Tokyo. Ettore Sottsass described Kuramata's pieces as being in "a permanent state of suspense," highlighting the designer's talent for creating unique and poetic compositions that convey motion and weightlessness. This triangular table with broken glass is attributed to Kuramata and showcases his famous "broken glass" technique, which he also used in the creation of the dining table for Tamotsu Yagi in 1987.
In good vintage condition, with a few minor marks on the wooden legs and steel frame. Some air leaks in the glass around the frame.
