French artist Yves Klein is counted as a leader of the French Nouveau Réalisme Art movement of the middle of the 20th century. This style bore many similarities to the American pop art movement, with a focus on bright colors, small parts of the larger world, and producing art out in the open rather than hiding in studios. Throughout his career, Klein’s work pushed boundaries and often tricked its audience by playing with space and physical boundaries. Some of his most iconic pieces featured a bold, bright shade of blue which would come to be known as ‘International Klein Blue’.
Table (Blue) plays with space and color by creating dimension in the surface, placing dunes of International Klein Blue pigment inside the plexiglass tabletop. Its clean lines and simplistic construction allow the signature radiant pigment to be the focal point of the table, creating an alluring backdrop for objects placed on the table or a magnificent standalone piece. Klein’s ultrafashionable table cocktail has grown to become a cult favorite among celebrities and collectors.
