very good original condition
h 95 / w 240 / d 52  cm

Sideboard with four white lacquered diamond shaped doors designed by  Philippon / Lecoq. The corpus is mahogany, the marple inlay maple features a big storage area with shelves on one side and additional two drawers on the other. Manufactured by Behr. Antoine Philippon and Jacqueline 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.
