Rare early version of this multifunctional table designed by Francois Caruelle for Embru Werke, Switzerland 1929. It’s made from bronze-patinated metal and can be adjusted in many ways. You can use it as a side table, work table, reading table, display table, or even a bed table.
It’s in very good and fully original condition. Using it is also super easy. You can swivel the top horizontally and vertically or take it off to use as a serving tray. This table is a real multitasker. The tops are made of warm-toned walnut wood, and the frame is made of patinated metal.
Tradition and innovation: for over 100 years Embru has been developing, refining and manufacturing metal furniture in Rüti near Zurich. Even as early as 1931 the company began a long-standing cooperation with some of the great architects of Modernism, among them Alvar Aalto, Marcel Breuer, Gustav Hassenpflug and the Swiss Avantgarde representatives Max Ernst Haefeli, Werner Max Moser, Alfred Roth and Rudolf Steiger. Whilst these furniture designs followed the Bauhaus tradition they simultaneously demonstrated a distinct “Swiss” attitude. Most significant during this period was the aluminium furniture by Marcel Breuer.
Today, some of the designs from that period are again being produced by Embru, and keep the history of Swiss design alive. Some time after its founding, Embru started to focus on furnishing purpose-built objects. Some groundbreaking examples were represented in Embru’s adjustable school and hospital furniture. A further highlight was the introduction in 1978 of a radically new concept for office furniture.
