Josef Albers & Vitra's
Bauhaus Nesting Tables
The best design is timeless, and the work of Josef Albers is proof. In the years after the professor was promoted to helm the department of design at Bauhaus in 1925, Mr. Albers began experimenting, applying his theory and eye for the geometric and abstract from his paintings to furniture design, testing his affinity for color and working with glass and other materials. He created several pieces for the Berlin apartment of friends, the psychoanalysts Fritz and Anna Moellenhoff, including this set of four solid oak tables. The glossy colored tops—acrylic top lacquered in pale green, orange, yellow and powder blue—reflect Albers' eye as an artist. Nearly a century later, they can hardly be called antiques. The Vitra Design Museum agreed, and brought back the future with this beautifully crafted incarnation. The iconic set is now produced Now produced in Germany by IC Design AG under license with the Albers Foundation.
