Josef Albers Nesting Tables
  • Josef Albers Nesting Tables
Josef Albers was mainly involved in furniture design during his time at the Bauhaus in Weimar, where, for a short time, he was also artistic director of the furniture workshop.

Vitra Design Museum has re-issued his Nesting Tables - originally created for the socalled Moellenhof House in Berlin: they combine clear geometrical shapes with use of colour derived from Albers’ painterly oeuvre. On the under side, the glass table tops are lacquered turquoise, yellow, red, or blue.
