About this vintage design furniture

This dining table is a rare variation on the iconic Gerbe model by French artist Maria Pergay, dating from 1970. It is composed of a cluster of flat, arched slats in polished steel, brushed steel and polished brass, on which an oval slab of transparent glass is mounted. The sinuous curves of the materials evoke fluidity and movement, adding a dynamic, sculptural element to the room and playing with light. A testament to Maria Pergay's ingenuity and talent, this table will add a singular touch of elegance to any interior. It has been restored and is in superb condition. The glass top has been replaced, and could stand to be even larger. Examples of larger glass tops can be found on Wright's website, where a gerbe table with a larger top sold for $126,000 in September 2005, or on Demish Danant's website, with an extra-large rectangular glass top. Maria Pergay (1930 - 2023) is a French furniture designer of Moldavian origin internationally renowned for her innovative creations in steel, a material she considers "as precious as the most precious of woods". From the late 1960s onwards, Pergay set herself apart from her contemporaries with an innovative approach that combined clean lines and raw materials to create pieces that were both functional and artistic. Over the decades, Maria Pergay became a leading figure in the creative field, notably through her iconic creations (e.g., "Gerbe" table, "Totem" wall lamps) which helped redefine contemporary design standards. Today, his metallic signature continues to inspire and captivate furniture lovers the world over.
