Long Table: Gallery Label - Current


Minneapolis Institute of Arts



Institution Minneapolis Institute of Arts
Comprised of only eleven pieces of wood, this beautifully proportioned side table consists of a solid plank top to which the four corner legs have been attached without the usual reinforcing with stretchers or "giant's arm braces." The result is an exceptionally simple and minimalist frame called "four-sides-square." The epitome of restraint, it is made possible by unusually complicated joins that at once secure each leg to two aprons and the top at the corner.
