Rocket/Jonathan Stephenson presents a group exhibition of Coffee Tables designed by contemporary designers, architects and artists from Europe and the United States. Each table in this new collection has been designed and made exclusively for Rocket.
‘Somehow, the occasional table turned into the coffee table, the Modern object of the twentieth century, the centrepiece of the living room, taking pride of place in front of the sofa. . . And now, in the twenty-first century, it has become an altar, where one displays one’s social and cultural aspirations by the careful placement of cautiously chosen stacks of coffee table books’ The coffee table coffee table book, Alexander Payne/James Zemaitis
The tables are exhibited together with a collection of minimalist Artists’ Books – historical and contemporary – by artists, designers, photographers and writers including Sol Lewitt, Bruno Munari, Ib Geertsen, Jasper Morrison and many more.
