Mexican Modern Convertible Dining/Coffee Table by Michael van Beuren for Domus Mexico
Bauhaus-trained, Mexico City-based Michael van Beuren created highly functional modern design inspired by Mexican vernacular styles and materials. This example is a convertible table with a teak frame. An under-frame of the table is strung with rattan, woven in a multi-strand basket weave resembling a checkerboard. An inset piece of glass brings the table surface even with the wooden frame and highlights the organic transparency of the weave. The rectangular frame base rotates on a hinged joint to shift the piece from coffee to dining table height.
Condition: Excellent vintage condition; professionally cleaned and polished. New glass has been cut according to original specifications.
Dimensions: As a coffee table, this piece measures 33.5” long x 33.5” wide x 21” height, and as a dining table the height converts to 30” height
