CHARLOTTE is the second from a series of coffee tables, designed in 1951 by German functionalist architect Ferdinand Kramer during his time in America. Named after his friend, the artist Charlotte Poseneske, the round coffee table CHARLOTTE bares sculptural qualities grounded in enduring and contemporary relevance. Similar to a clothing pattern, the table’s components are cut out of a single plywood sheet. The easily invertible and collapsible CHARLOTTE is also part of Ferdinand Kramer’s successful "Knock-Down" series. The measurements of the base are identical to those of the square CALVERT. Its round table top however makes CHARLOTTE the larger of the two coffee tables. CHARLOTTE is available in oak veneer as well as coloured lacquer.
