I am always on the outlook for timeless pieces of furniture , so I was so pleased to find this stunning contemporary Armonica coffee table retailing at £234.00. It’s base is made out of dark finished vertical steel rods with a round tempered clear glass table top. It screams quality and substance.
I wasn’t searching for them but the Bartok table lamps made my day! Their open wire bases are made out of shaped, coloured wire rods . The Bartok table lamps retail at £99.00 on our website, they come in two different styles and two colours. The Bartok Red table lamp base has been created with red coloured metal wire rods. It stands tall and proud and comes with a red trapeze shaped lamp shade.
The Bartok Black lamp has a different designed lamp base that also is made out of shaped wire rods but coloured black. A black drum lamp shade finishes off the look.
The designs of the Armonica coffee table and the Bartock table lamps remind me of the iconic furniture designed by the 60s architect and designer Mr.Warren Platner .He has designed a range of furniture made out of steel rods. The idea to shape steel rods into furniture came to him during a walk through the countryside where a shiny sheath of wheat inspired him to transformed nickel plated steel rods into sculptural furniture that is now considered a design icon. It has won him the American Institute of Architects International Award.
Mr Warren Platner’s prototypes were sold at an auction signalling growing interest by collectors of Mid-Century Modern design and this collection has been in continuous production ever since.
