FK04 CALVERT is from a series of coffee tables, desi gned in 1951 by renowned modernist German architect and designer Ferdinand Kramer during his time in America. Part of his successful “Knock-Down” furniture series, the square FK04 CALVERT is an enduring and modern piece. The easily invertible and collapsible coffee table consists of a tabletop and two crossing invertib le sheets serving as a base for the table. Similar to a clothing pattern, the components of the table are cut out of a single plywood sheet. The intrinsically simple cut out base of FK04 CALVERT reveals a sculptural quality to the table. E15 offers the re-edition or in oak or walnut veneer, clear lacquered and a variety of coloured lacquer.
