Heinz Lilienthal coffee table E6 Germay 1970





Striking E6 coffee table designed by Heinz Lilienthal and manufactured in Germany in 1970. The table’s top is a true masterpiece, etched with a stunning graphic design and encircled by a wooden rim. Remarkably well-preserved, the table maintains its original condition. The top is composed of 24 squares, each having a unique and intriguing shape. The diversity of etched forms creates a mesmerising effect. The play of light on the surface lends it a dynamic quality, appearing different from every angle. Its bold base design features a polyurethane base with a distinctive brutalist style, exuding an air of strength and modernity.


Heinz Lilienthal ( born April 25, 1927 in Neidenburg in East Prussia; † June 6, 2006 in Javea, Spain) was one of the pioneering German glass painters for church building in the post-war years. He also designed wall decorations in metal, wood and concrete, furnished ships for the Greek shipowners Aristoteles Onassis and Stavros Niarchos and finally became a successful designer of table furniture. Lilienthal became self-employed and founded the studio for church art in Bremen-Lesum in 1952. For the production of the church windows, he used both the classic lead glazing and the technique of concrete glazing, which was only developed in the first half of the 20th century. The latter was to gain greater importance for his work. Stylistically, both representational and completely abstract representations are present in his work, even in a single building in harmonious coexistence.


In addition to stained glass, Lilienthal developed other creative fields of activity. He created mosaics, designed table furniture and, since the 1960s, has been experimenting with the materials metal, concrete, natural stone and wood for large-scale wall designs both indoors and outdoors. He found an artistic expression that thrives on the contrast between circular and linear forms as well as light and dark materials. His innovative metal smelting work brought him recognition at home and abroad.
