Machine Age tubular chrome end table with lacquered wood tops in satin black. Designed by Alfons Bach for Lloyd Loom Manufacturing, c. 1930's.

Tubular steel furniture designed by Mr. Bach for the Lloyd Manufacturing Company was made at its factory in Menominee, Mich., from the 1930's until 1947
Alfons Bach, 1904-1999, was born in Magdeburg, Germany.  Bach studied architecture at the University of Berlin and at the Reimann School.
Bach came to the U.S. in 1926 and established an industrial design firm in 1932 in New York City.  In 1937 he moved to Stamford, Connecticut, becoming president of the American Designers Institute in 1943.  He continued his successful practice in Palm Beach, Florida, in 1959, and retired to Pensacola, Florida in 1992.
With this piece you see the marriage of design and industry; you see a very creative individual who was very proficient in the design rhetoric for his time producing work for a company which was highly significant in developing the tubular-steel manufacturing technology of the day.
Excellent original condition.
