Martin Eisler Coffee Table in Caviuna Wood and Glass, Brazil 1950s

This small coffee table is designed by Martin Eisler and Susi Aczel for Forma. The coffee table consists of a wooden base supported by three delicate tapered legs giving the table an elevated feeling. On top of the base are three rounded elements positioned round the top that support the round glass tabletop. The elements rise slightly upwards around the edge of the glass making the glass top fall perfectly into the frame. The outer sides of the caviuna table and elements are finished with a black coating accentuating the three-dimensional shape of the table.

About the designer:

Born in 1913 in Vienna, Austria, Martin Eisler received his architecture degree in 1936. However, as in the life of so many Brazilian designers, it was the looming thundercloud of the second world war that made him move just after his studies where finished. First to Czechoslovakia (where his parents lived) and later, in 1938, to Argentina. Here Eisler began to exercise his profession as an architect and interior designer and opened up his interior design firm, later named Interieur Forma. In the early 1950’s he decided to move to Brazil. Read more about Carlo Hauner and Martin Eisler.


In good vintage condition. Wear consistent with age and use. The wooden frame has some minor marks and scratches. Most likely the black part has been repainted later.
