Card table model H-278, designed by Jindřich Halabala in the early 1950s for the company Uměleckoprůmyslové Závody. The table was produced in a limited run, making it a very rare piece today. Originally a cabinetmaker by trade, Halabala later studied at the Academy of Arts, Architecture & Design in Prague under Professor Pavel Janák, and this influence is likely where his designs got their clean, functionalist forms.

The top of this table is made from solid spruce with a walnut veneer. It has the same solid beech legs as the more well-known “Spider” model, but each of the four corners has a narrow drawer with a wave-shaped tin insert for storing cards. The table underwent a complete renovation in our workshop using natural oils and waxes, and the drawers have been thoroughly cleaned.
