Sculptural Mahogany and steel Table by Paul Dierkes, Germany, 1960s
This large sculptural low table from Paul Dierkes is made of solid mahogany and heavy steel legs. The square metal plates that connect the legs to the bottom, are brought back in the table top by the way the wood is worked. The table top is carved out in a manner that is similar to the work of Atelier Marolles. Dierkes rarely made furniture and only for friends. This table was bought from one of Dierkes' friends, who used it in a villa in Berlin Zehlendorf. The garden of this villa has several sculptures by Dierkes in it.
Paul Dierkes (1907-1968) was a sculptor and graphic designer, working in post-war Berlin. For his sculptures he worked mostly with stone and wood. Apart from autonomous projects, he also worked with architects like Egon Eiermann, Peter Poelzig and Sep Ruf. A prominent example of these collaborations is Eiermann's Gedächtniskirche , for which Dierkes made the crucifix, amongst other work.
