The Fox Head Coffee Table was inspired by the work of Diego Giacometti (1902-1985). Diego was a Swiss sculptor and furniture designer, and the younger brother of sculptor Alberto Giacometti. After business studies in Basel and Saint-Gall, he followed the advice of his mother Annetta and went to Paris to join his brother Alberto, then a student of the sculptor Antoine Bourdelle at the Academy of the Grande Chaumière. The working relationship of Diego with Alberto was so close that it is sometimes difficult to distinguish the work of Diego from that of Alberto.
The Fox Head Coffee table is made by a casting process. Molten metal is poured into a sand mold that can be used only once. The rough casting is then painstakingly smoothed by a skilled craftsman. This is a long and laborious task requiring great care as not to destroy the organic surface texture. The final product then receives a multilayer hand-applied finish. It is recommended that the table base be used with a thick glass top with flat polished edge. Robust metal construction allows the base to support the heaviest top without flexing. With its European style timeless elegance, the Fox Head Coffee Table makes an exceptional cocktail table for upscale residential and hospitality interiors. Four polished bronze glides are provided which also serve as levelers – a useful feature to have when the floor is uneven. Offered in a variety of finishes. Custom sizing is available.
