Karl Springer LTD, Monumental Goatskin Dining Table, USA
The exquisite dining table, made of freeform inlay natural goatskin in warm pearl grey, features classic Art Deco lines, the round base blossoms into four elegant pillars that support the monumental three inch thick circular top. The table is finished in a polished lacquer. Springer is often credited with reviving the art of applying skins to furniture, a practice long associated with French Deco masters including Jean Michel Frank, Jean Dunand, and Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann. Able to seat up to twelve people, the table is an iconic Springer design and a fantastic example of his signature works in which elegant forms and proportions meet opulent materials and finishes.
In partnership with Mark Eckman, President of Karl Springer LTD, Todd Merrill has curated a selection of Karl Springer’s most iconic designs to be reissued exclusively at Todd Merrill Studio.
Though he based his designs on European classical forms, Karl Springer developed an irreverent and non-doctrinaire idiom of bold proportions, highly exotic finishes, and a sometimes-flashy palette that identified him strongly with his American clientele. His work speaks with the confidence and energy of the 1970s and 80s and now finds new relevance in the world of contemporary design.
Karl Springer LTD pieces are available exclusively through Todd Merrill Studio on a commission basis. Custom dimensions and materials may be accommodated.
