Michael Elkan Studio Crafted Coffee Table of Maple Burl, USA, 1980s
A studio crafted coffee table by American woodworker Michael Elkan. The table is made of a star-shaped wooden base with six feet and has a 7 cm (2.8") thick maple burl slab as a top. Elkan strove to create simple and functional pieces that showed the beauty of the wood. The top of this piece is made from a single tree, to create a harmonious flow. Michael Elkan (1942–2014) was an American designer, craftsman and artist. After a career in the fashion industry, he started his woodwork studio in Oregon in 1980.
