70s Oak brutalist coffee table
Brutalism is a movement within architecture that originated from modernism. It is characterized by often large block-like structures and rough material. Because of its bombastic, sometimes intimidating appearance, brutalism was mainly used for large public buildings, such as concert halls, libraries, courts and town halls. It is a style that often provokes opinion and had its heyday from the 50s to the 70s of the twentieth century in terms of building design. But in furniture architecture this is a bit different.
The interfaces in design are clear. Angular, heavy and original raw material, as a kind of counterpart to all veneer products from the sixties, a lot of brutalist furniture was also made until the seventies. However, in the range of furniture made of original solid wood, the style is spread much wider over time. Even furniture from the 1930s can be labeled brutalist as long as it is solid or natural material and often angular and heavy.
This coffee table is full french oak and consists of a beautiful solid leg with three separately mounted solid oak beams. The table is heavy but still reasonably portable and has beautiful details and construction connections. The table is completely timeless and fits in many interiors.
