The Pedrera Coffee Table was originally designed in 1955 by Barba Corsini. Whilst working as chief architect on a renovation project of Antoni Gaudi’s iconic ‘La Pedrera’ building in Barcelona, Corsini began to design a collection of furniture that would complement the new modernist style rooms.
Inspired by the unique contours and vaulted ceilings of La Pedrera, Corsini’s design features an undulating steel base and an organic, curved glass tabletop. Impactful from every angle, the table’s sculptural yet minimal form creates a sense of lightness and sophistication, effortlessly complementing both classic and contemporary interiors.
Barba Corsini (1916-2008) was a leading functionalist architect who won international praise for his architecture and his design for La Pedrera. Corsini was strongly inspired by German architect, Mies van der Rohe and American architect Frank Lloyd Wright.
Joaquim Ruiz Millet (1955-) created Galeria H20 in Barcelona in 1989, where he furthered his activities as gallery owner, cultural agitator, curator of exhibitions, and editor of books and design objects.
