Clear-lined sideboard with white lacquered diamond shaped doors designed by Antoine Philippon and Jacqueline Lecoq. Mahogany corpus with maple inlay featuring a big storage area with shelves on one side and four drawers on the other side. Manufactured by Behr. Philippon/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-André Motte, Pierre Guariche, René-Jean Caillett and Demish Danant Gallery.
