The top is made up of 40 handmade tiles by the artist. The aluminum frame is incorporated into the top of the table, creating an interesting contrast of materials.
The only scant attributions/biographical information I've found, which I have not confirmed, is that the artist was a Belgian ceramic artist Julien de Covemaeker using the alias of J. Belarti in the 1960s and 1970s. Several sites attribute the same tiled coffee tables to Belgian ceramist Juliette F. Belarti.
