Knoll Girard Coffee Table

Alexander Girard, 1948

U.S.A.

Alexander Girard described himself as “a reasonable and sane functionalist, tempered by irrational frivolity.” The Model 108 Coffee Table, introduced to the Knoll catalog in 1948, reflects the playful spirit he injected into the often austere modern vocabulary.

The underside of the Girard table’s asymmetrical top has a chamfered edge. This combined with thin black steel legs creates the impression of lightness. The plywood top is available in walnut, maple, cherry, or ebonized walnut veneer.

Dimensions: 59″ W x 26″ D x 16″ H
