Karl Springer LTD, Sonnenteller (Sun Plate), USA
An iconic design by Karl Springer, the Sonnenteller Sculpture debuted in 1980 and is said to have been inspired by a sun mask from the African art collection of one of Springer’s friends. Made in two sizes, the sculpture is available in both polished stainless steel and polished bronze. The Bronze Sonnenteller, shown here, is displayed on a patinated stainless steel base.
Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, Karl Springer (1931-1991) created custom designs with superb craftsmanship and extreme attention to detail. Though he based his designs on European classical forms, Springer developed an irreverent and non-doctrinaire idiom of bold proportions and highly exotic finishes. His iconic work speaks with the confidence and energy of the 1970s and now finds new relevance in the world of contemporary design.
