Carl Dern (1936-2009 ) Mid Century Metal Side Table
Two tiers of nickel finish.
40in. h. 26in.w. 16in.d
Carl Dern created chairs, ladders, and trees from steel, bronze, and wood serving as metaphors for the human form and the fragility of life. Despite the solidity of their materials, his tall, carefully balanced chairs, tilting ladders, and delicate trees often seem just on the verve of tipping, conveying a sense of potential motion and the uncertainty of all things.
