Exhibited at Design Miami/ Paris 2023 In 1963 and 1964, the French furniture company Les Huchers-Minvielle commissioned Antoine Philippon & Jacqueline Lecoq to design a collection of office chairs utilizing molded plywood and cast aluminum. The most sophisticated model from this collection was the Siège 3001 T8 - a wood veneer version which was soon associated with the prestigious series of glass desks Philippon and Lecoq later designed for the Mobilier National. They were presented together at the Salon des Artistes Décorateurs in 1967. Our desk chair is a perfect example of Philippon and Lecoq's minimalist and functional design, balanced with a sense of comfort and elegance. Like many innovative designs of the period, this model was not commercially successful and not many were produced.
Materials: Cast aluminum, molded plywood, veneer, foam, fabric.
