The Paul Frankl series of furnishings composed of a table, side table and console with shelves, was designed around 1930. The structure of the tables, realized by squared section frame, is composed by elements whose curved angles are in a figure "c" , joined together with screws. The composition of equal elements, staggered and assembled, is comprised of two decades of design for metal tables adopted by Kjaerholm. Paul Frankl used this squared section frame with these type of curved angles on other designs as well.
Born in Vienna in 1886, Frankl moved to the United States in 1914, and by the 1920s was well-established enough to open his own NYC gallery, promoting his famous skyscraper furniture style. As a designer, merchant, instructor, and writer, Frankl was a founder of, and a great proponent for, American Modernism throughout his career.
