Precise angles and a solid demeanour make the I Beam side table perfect for any design-conscious home, office or lounge. Crafted from powder-coated cast aluminium and left bare, the I Beam table offers an auxiliary surface and a witty artistic statement.
From Industrial to Sublime
Inspired by a piece in his own Long Island vacation home, Ward Bennett designed this table as part of his inaugural furniture collection for Brickel in 1963 – long before industrial elements in home furnishings became a trend. In fact, Bennett was a pioneer in using these materials and was honoured by the American Institute of Architects for “transforming industrial hardware into sublime objects”.
A Hard-Edged Romantic
Textile designer Jack Lenor Larsen said, ''Ward knew how to use materials in an honest way that expressed the structure''. Hale Allen, who commissioned Bennett to design a summer home for him, said he chose Bennett because the designer was “a hard-edged romantic”. Sublime, honest, hard-edged romantic. The I Beam side table exemplifies all those characteristics of this iconic American designer.
