X-Frame Table, 1958

Tapio Wirkkala


Lacquered elm/oak/birch, tempered glass

Tapio Wirkkala designed the X-frame table in 1958. In this one-of-a-kind table shapes of nature and geometric forms intertwine together in a most captiviting way. The glass top table comes out in three frame options: elm, oak and plywood.

These two strong materials, wood and glass, form a sculptorous and elegant piece of art.
