Description

This incredible and unusual round side table is attributed to Grete Jalk. It was made circa 1960 by Poul Jeppesen Mobelfabrik A/S. Comprised of a gorgeous round teak top which is back beveled to reveal the structural plywood used in its construction and seeming to float above its four sculptural tapered legs. This unique and useful table is in wonderful vintage condition with no outstanding flaws we have seen. A little about Grete Jalk: she is one of the rare women designers of the 20th century. Born in Copenhagen in 1920 and passed in 2006 at the age of 86. She was trained at Copenhagen’s Design School for Women and the Danish Royal Academy under Kaare Klint. She designed for the best known Danish manufacturers i.e. Poul Jeppesen, Fritz Hansen, Glostrup and France and Son. Inspired by the Eames duo and Alvar Alto she won awards and has pieces in the Museum of Modern Art. Her pieces are highly sought after. Make this one yours.
