Nesting Tables by Josef Albers
Josef Albers designed the Nesting Tables as early as 1927. In keeping with the Bauhaus credo, they are sleek, simple and therefore functional and effective. Together with the Museum of Modern Art, Klein & More is launching the iconic nesting tables in a practical set of four.
Geometric Line Structure and Effective Colour Areas
The nesting tables - originally designed for the so-called Möllenhof House in Berlin - reedited by Vitra and now produced by Klein & More combine clear geometric forms with a use of colour derived from Albers´ painterly work. The glass table tops are lacquered in turquoise, yellow, red and light blue on their underside. The nesting tables clearly show Albers´ preference for geometric line structures and simple, juxtaposed colour surfaces that influence and change each other. Thanks to the different colours, there are many different effects when the tables are brought out, combined and varied.
Made of Wood and Glass in Germany
The friendly pastel colours give the nesting tables a positive charm and set cheerful colour accents on the otherwise simple tables. Due to the different, optimally matched sizes, Josef Albers nesting tables can be accommodated in each other to save space. The frame of the Josef Albers Nesting Tables is made of solid oak and beech wood, the table top of glass, which is imported from Italy. The tables are produced in a traditional family business in the Erzgebirge.
