Eva Zeisel Contemporary Biomorphic Coffee Table, original. Classic, sculptural, modern, original. Purchased from Design Within Reach for $1,500 (+ tax and shipping). Selling for $850 Dimensions: 58.0ʺW × 33.25ʺD × 18.25ʺH IN PERSON/CASH PICK UP ONLY An Eva Zeisel creation, circa 1993. Known for her sculptural artistry inspired by the natural world, she seems to have designed this table to be an elegant creature of its own. The onyx X-shaped base curves and flips with biomorphic zeal, supporting an oval glass tabletop surface. This table will be the focal point of any room. Eva Zeisel was continually intrigued by what she called her "playful search for beauty" - an idea she continued to explore until December 30, 2011, when she passed away at age 105. Zeisel was world renowned for her ceramics, and when she was in her early 80s, she started designing tables. The medium may have changed, but her coffee table (1993) is still very Zeisel with its whimsical lines and ornamental motifs.
