Description

John Crichton was one of the most talented and progressive New Zealand designers of the mid 20th century. His pioneering work helped define what is now known as Pan Pacific modernism, a locally inspired fusion of Japanese, American and Pacific references combined with a modernist ethic.

This epic mosaic tile coffee table is a museum quality example of Crichton's work and one of only three we have ever seen. It is likely to have been a custom commission for a wealthy client with bold and progressive taste in interiors. Hand cut tiles in vibrant colours radiate from a central point in an enticing geometric flourish – this is Crichton at his best!
