VOLUTE | Oval table
Lacquered oval wooden dining table
Frank Lloyd Wright’s vision made him unwilling to build the Guggenheim Museum in New York in an era when it lacked architectural excellence. His decision to take on the challenge and project Guggenheim’s organic form in the middle of an overbuilt area marked a crucial turning point for the city. Outstanding from outside-in, the spiral design on the interior takes visitors on a smooth downward slope to view the art. In Volute dining table, Malabar honors the Prairie School of architecture with an inspired modernist design. For the finishing, a marquetry technique is used to apply the ironwood to the oval table top. Below, black lacquer and ironwood adorn the legs that spiral towards the ground.
