This coffee table was manufactured in Germany, in the 1970s. The top of the table – made of Green Alps marble – has a quite large diameter (98 cm) and is in perfect shape. It’s color (green with black swirls and veins) is placed in an interesting dialogue with the coldness and the sobriety of the structure, made of well-polished stainless steel. The legs of the table, resembling the fins of a space-rocket, are consistent with Atomic/Space Age design shapes and lines. The Space Age is a time period encompassing the activities related to the Space Race, space exploration, space technology, and the cultural developments influenced by these events. The Space Age is generally considered to have begun with Sputnik (1957). During the 1950s, architecture, furniture, interior design, cars, and gadget design took on a curiously spaceflight-inspired aesthetic.
