Rocha Vivas sculptural dining table Argentina 1960





Rare and truly unique sculptural dining or centre table designed by Roberto Vivas and made in his own atelier in Argentina in 1960. This is an exceptional functional sculpture as Vivas described his artworks. A sculpture that communicates with its surroundings. The base is made of painted concrete in a warm tone. The oval glass top has a bevelled rim which is a wonderful detail. The butterfly-shaped sculpture has the same form on both sides but with different appearances. On one side there’s a circular hole where the other has a more almond shape. Beautiful three-dimensional design with an architectural feel. The most interesting part is that Vivas made rough concrete look so soft due to its sculpting techniques. It’s a one of a kind piece that can serve both as a dining table or as a centre piece in a hallway. In both applications a true conversation piece.


The base has some older repairs but since the surface is pretty rough from itself, they do not stand out. The glass top has normal and age related surface wear, no chips or cracks. Marked Rocha on the base.
