This convertible dining table, which is as visually impressive as it is practical, translates Max Bill's ideas of constructive art into product design. The Bauhaus-trained Swiss designer created this modern masterpiece for the famous Wohnbedarf furniture store in Zurich in 1949. With an easy turn of a support rail, the square table expands into a larger, circular surface. The resulting optical pattern recalls the rhythmic partitions in Bill's graphic art, which is represented in the Museum's collection. Crafted from solid maple with clear lacquer, black linoleum veneer and maple trim.
