Nesting Tables by Josef Albers
As early as 1927 Josef Albers Nesting Tables designed. In keeping with the Bauhaus credo, they are formally simple, unpretentious and precisely for that reason functional and effective. Together with the Museum of Modern Art launches Klein & More the iconic set tables in a practical set of 4.
Geometric line structures and effective colour surfaces
The set tables, then reedited by Vitra and now produced by Klein & More originally designed for the so-called Möllenhof-Haus in Berlin - combine clear geometric forms with a use of colour derived from Albers' painterly work. The glass tabletops are painted on their undersides in turquoise, yellow, red and light blue. In the Nesting Tables clearly shows Albers' preference for geometric line structures and simple, juxtaposed areas of color that influence and change each other. Thanks to the different colours, there are multi-layered 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 add cheerful colour accents to the otherwise plain tables. Because of the different sizes, which are optimally adapted to each other, the Nesting Tables by Josef Albers can be stored space-savingly one inside the other. The frame of the Josef Albers Nesting Tables consists of solid oak and beech wood as well as a table top made of glass, which is imported from Italy. The tables are produced in a traditional family business in the Erzgebirge.
