Karl Springer LTD, Bronze Free Form Low Table “C”, USA, 2016
The Free Form Low Table, was the first piece reissued under the gallery’s exclusive representation of Karl Springer LTD. Sleek and elegant, the mirror-polished bronze individual tables are set on hidden, recessed casters so they may move and pivot with ease. Originally created in the 1970s, the Free Form Low Table is one of Springer’s most iconic designs in his extensive body of work.
Available in three forms, each unique, amorphic table has a customizable height in the range of 14 to 18 inches. Consistent with Springer’s original design, the Free Form Low Table is available by commission in stainless steel, brass, or polished bronze.
Originally created in the 1970s during the designer’s showroom expansion to a 20,000 square-foot penthouse on East 61st street, the free-form table is one of Springer’s most iconic designs in his extensive body of work. Springer worked to perfect the shape of each table. The prototypes were made in polished stainless steel, sometimes with a ¾” black glass top— an addition artfully executed by his longtime friend Wesley Depp. At once functional piece and unique sculptural objet d’art, the Free Form Low Table makes its contemporary design debut with Todd Merrill Studio.
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 that is evidenced in this exquisite low table reissued through the partnership of Karl Springer LTD and Todd Merrill Studio. His iconic work speaks with the confidence and energy of the 1970s and now finds new relevance in the world of contemporary design.
