First Edition 1980s Constantin Low Table by Studio Simon with Brass Top. The Constantin table is designed by Dino Gavina in tribute to Brancusi with shaped base in solid waxed oak. Round table top in brass, with brushed glazed surface.
Top-base connection with brass pins and nylon ferrules, floor protection with adhesive felt pads. Simon hosts a collection of designs and products which are true design icons. With “Ultramobile” collection Simon takes works of art and makes them into “functional” pieces of furniture, and finding surprising new ways to adapt Surrealist pieces, converting them into everyday household objects.
Dino Gavina, founder of Simon, began his career in the 40’s working on stage sets. He was convinced that design needed to be both modern and richly poetic. So his work was an important starting point for what then came to be known as Italian Style, and has since come to stand for top quality, giving Italian design the prestigious reputation that it still enjoys today through out the whole world.
The brass top has some wear of age and use and the wood a beautiful patine.
