This modernist classic was designed by Marcel Breuer during his wartime exile in England, during which time he lived at the Lawn Road building in Hampstead.
Breuer had already designed his now famous range of tubular steel furniture, but this was his first use of birch plywood. The table he designed is both light and strong; it can be moved single-handed and yet can bear the weight of a person sitting on it.
Breuer was evidently pleased with the result as he installed his furniture range for Isokon in his American home after he emigrated to the US in 1937.
Solid Finnish birch plywood frame and legs, bent Finnish birch plywood top.
