Eric Pfeiffer Table

Just perusing the internet, risdworks.com, and ran across this coffee table.
Primarily concerned with process, Eric Pfeiffer expresses the directness and purity of his chosen materials through reduction and refinement. SFMoMA snapped up four of his objects for its permanent collection within a year after he arrived on the San Francisco design scene. In 1997 The Gap tapped Pfeiffer to design its 10,000-square-foot flagship store in Tokyo. Commissions from the Pottery Barn, the San Francisco Zoo, North Face and several California wineries soon followed. Aaron Betsky, curator of Architecture and Design at SFMoMA, considers Pfeiffer “one of the most elegant and witty furniture designers” he knows and marvels at “the way he uses simple materials to create forceful and engaging forms.”
