In play with proportions the GALERIE table designed by David Chipperfield for e15 is scaled in small, medium and large with corresponding tabletops offered with flush or with extended overhangs. The modest and elegant structure of the table is reinforced with custom metal hardware, allowing for stability and the extended length of the overhangs. Made of solid oak, GALERIE is available with oiled finish or black lacquered.
In 2012 David Chipperfield Architects were commissioned to restore the Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin, an icon of twentieth-century architecture by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, built from 1963 to 1968. Table GALERIE was originally designed for the café of the Neue Nationalgalerie. The table’s slim and elongated outline reiterates the pure and striking character of the iconic building.
