The iconic Charlotte Perriand spent 20 years working on the immensive architectural project of Les Arcs Ski Resort in Savoie, France. This dining or occasional table is one the furniture pieces she designed for this project. The combination of the striking black metal base and the characteristic octagonal shape of the pinewood top make this a particularly interesting design. The top is in original and nicely patinated condition.
