The triangle table is a piece of modernist furniture first produced in the mid-20th century. Introduced by Herman Miller in 1947, it was designed by Japaner. The Triangle coffee table comprises a wooden base composed of two identical curved wood pieces, and a heavy plate tempered glass top.
The triangle table, also known as triangle end table, was an evolution of a rosewood and triangle glass table designed in 1939 for A. Conger Goodyear, president of the Museum of Modern Art, in which way, some peopel may call it triangle Goodyear table. The design team at Herman Miller was so impressed by the table's use of biomorphism that they recruited designer to design a similar table with a freeform sculptural base and biomorphic glass top for use in both residential and office environments. The 1947 Herman Miller catalog described the coffee table as "sculpture-for-use" and "design for production". The base was carved from solid walnut, and consisted of two identical parts; when one part "is reversed and connected to the other by a pivot rod, a base appears which has a smoothly flowing form and an interest rarely found in furniture of any period." The shape of the two wooden supports produces a self-supporting and stable base, allowing the heavy plate glass top to be placed without the use of connectors.
The base of Triangle table was originally produced in walnut, birch, and cherry. The top was originally issued in ⅞″ plate glass. In 1965, the thickness of the top was reduced to ¾″, and its base height was raised, increasing the table's total height from 15″ to 15¾″.The table became one of Herman Miller's most iconic and successful designs. Production ceased in 1973, and the piece became an instant collectible. Herman Miller reissued it in 1980 in a limited edition of about 480 tables. The table was reintroduced again in 1984 for the "Herman Miller Classics" line, and has been in production ever since. As they are popular, triangle tables replica are also available at vitra, kardiel, DWR, etc.
Despite their status as modern classics,coffee tables' price is widely available and relatively affordable. This is at least partly due to the fact that they were in constant production from 1947 until 1973, returned to production in 1984, and have been produced ever since. And currently, the base of most Triangle coffee table is made of walnut. The most popular white table and black coffee tables. In addition, the table is very durable, and few have been lost over the years. The base can be dinged and scratched but almost never cracks or breaks. The glass tops are prone to chipping along the edges and scratching on the upper surface, but are so large and heavy they rarely break. The table can support a great weight without damage. Expect to pay $500 and up for an undamaged example, and $1,500 and up for an early version in birch. Only the 1947 original triangle cherry tables are truly rare collectibles.
