Scott Burton championed functional art, creating works that he described as “sculpture in love with furniture.” Calling to mind the simplified geometric forms of Minimalism, Burton’s table, an inverted cone balancing on a wide circular base, offers students and passersby a place to socialize or study. 1978–79

Scott Burton, 1939–1989

Proverbs 1:8-9
