A 1940's dining table by French Modernist designer and architect Rene Herbst (1891-1982). Herbst was known for his advocacy of of the industrialisation of furniture as a form of modern art and co-founding The French Union Of Modern Artists in 1929. 

The table is made from birds eye maple veneer with a nickel plated tubular base. We have had the table restored to it's original beauty through refinishing the surface and strengthening the supportive struts under the table top.

The table is referenced in "Le Décor d'aujourd'hui", n° 41, 1947, pp. 57-58 and 

Solange Goguel, "René Herbst", Éditions du Regard, Paris, 1990, p. 330.
