1970s Brutalist coffee table

Paul Kingma (Nl. 1931-2013)

Cement with inserted stone and metal elements on two part steel base. This is a particularly early example which could be considered a bit more rudimentary and less slick than Kingma’s later work from the 80s and 90s. It is signed with a metal plaque within the design.

Kingma was a sculptor in the mid-c20th who turned to furniture making as a way of supporting his artistic work and found that he could support himself better with such work than with his fine art.
