Guy Lefèvre is a French designer who works with furniture like a goldsmith. Playing with shiny and matt metals, and transparencies, he offers a design of great rigor, understated, elegant and classy. This end table was produced by the prestigious Maison Jansen in the 1970s. Made of brushed steel, the pedestal table has two smoked glass tops. Its design is simple, its proportions subtle; a slight void space located under the tray reinforces the feeling of levitation and emphasizes the play of light.
