"Condor" Coffee Table by Fredrik Schriever Abeln for Örebro Glas, Sweden 1960s

$ 3,135
  • Description
    Swedish designer, Fredrik Schriever-Abeln’s designs have become quite sought after only in the past years. This is in part due to the beloved design of this “Condor” table being misattributed to Illum Wikkelsø until recently.

    The distinctive “X” shaped teak base defines this coffee table holding a glass top. The solid wood base is sculpted to perfection, the level of woodwork and precise joinery technique greatly shows off the skills of the craftsman. The structure is made with minimal joinery, the glass top is held solely by the carved “arms”, while the stretcher is joined to the legs with mortise and tenon joints. The balance of the size of the glass top and wooden parts praise the designer’s vision. The modern aesthetic shows that this table - like the Condor chairs - are from the more mature, later part of the mid-century modern era. At the same time, with a clear statement of simplicity, quality and respect for materials, this table is a great example of the Swedish Modern design era as well. The wood’s surface is perfectly smooth, and the edges rounded mimicking the glass. The result is a flowing, sculpted look that makes a clear statement.

    This model also exists with a smoked glass top, however this version with clear glass shows off the elaborate teak base more, allowing the structure to remain visible from every angle. Being Fredrik Schriever Abeln’s most famous design, this coffee table is guaranteed to stand out in any space.
