The Propeller Coffee Table was designed by Knut Hesterberg for Ronald Schmitt  between 1964-1967. It is a remarkable piece of furniture that epitomizes the sleek and modern style of the mid-century era. This iconic table is a prime example of Hesterberg's minimalist design aesthetic, which is characterized by clean lines, simple shapes, and functional elements.
The table's name is derived from its unique propeller-shaped base, which is crafted from iron in a copper finish and features three curved legs that intersect in the center to form a striking geometric pattern. The base not only provides stability and support but also adds a sculptural element that elevates the table's design beyond mere functionality.
The tabletop is made of smoked glass, which provides a clear and unobstructed view of the propeller base, further accentuating the table's unique design. The glass is thick and sturdy, ensuring that the table can withstand the rigors of daily use while maintaining its elegant appearance.
The Propeller Coffee Table is a highly versatile piece of furniture that can complement a variety of interior styles. It works well in modern and contemporary spaces, where its minimalist design can help to create a sleek and uncluttered aesthetic. However, it can also be used in more traditional settings, where it can add a touch of modern flair and visual interest.
Knut Hesterberg was a prominent furniture designer of the mid-century era who worked with a variety of materials, including metal, glass, and wood. His designs were often characterized by their simplicity and functionality, and he was known for his innovative use of materials and attention to detail.
This piece is in original and good vintage condition, with some very small scratches in the glass top.
