Stunning, wall-mounted sideboard in lush cherry wood, with a white laminate front by French Auguste Philippon and Jaqueline Lecoq. Manufactured by Bofinger. Philippon and Leqoc shared a fruitful life-long cooperation after their shared studies in Paris. Their main goal and breach with the times norms was to offer beauty and quality to the broadest audience possible. With their almost puritanical sense for functionalism free from all ornamentalism without compromising humanness, warmth and harmony, they were an extraordinary example of the genre of French Modernism which included also Joseph-AndrĂ© Motte, Pierre Guariche, RenĂ©-Jean Caillett and Demish Danant Gallery.
