Catalogue Note

The "Vrillée" table was created from a single sheet of steel, in which each arm was twisted into its current position.  The manner in which this table was conceived gives the form an overall sense of tension and movement, with an elegance in the simplicity of its materials.  This rare table model debuted at the 1962 Salon des Arts Ménagers and approximately ten examples are known to exist.
