Magnificent bench with woven leather belts in black on a matte chromium plated steel base. The confident, clear-shaped bench is an original example from 1955, manufactured by Laverne International. The designer couple Erwine and Estelle Laverne, both trained painters, pooled their collective talent into design since the 1930s resonating in the establishment of the influential Laverne Originals in 1938. Their precise and unique modern artistic style lead them to be hired to complete grand projects inside interior design as well, such as as the house of film director Otto Preminger or offices for big-name companies like General Motors and Ford Motors.
