OBJECT DESCRIPTION

The Square-Round Table by Max Bill was originally designed in 1949. It features an innovative and easy-to-use lock mechanism to expand the table top from square to round. The table is beautifully crafted using solid maple, clear lacquer, and black linoleum. The surface is easily washable and the table is built for real use.

"Beauty of function" and "beauty as function" were two important themes to Max Bill (1908-1994), especially evident in this collection of furniture characterized by clarity of design, simplicity, logic and economical use of materials. Max Bill studied at the Bauhaus in 1927-28 under the tutelage of Albers, Moholy-Nagy, Klee and Kandinsky. His interest in industrial design grew with the economic boom after the war, and in the importance of the appearance of things, an influence which came from the impressive talent from America. This collection is produced by WB Form, the distributor arm of the furniture store Wohnbedarf for which Max Bill designed most of these pieces. Made in Germany and Switzerland.
