Guillerme et Chambron, corner desk, stained oak, France, 1960s
Corner desk by French designer duo Guillerme and Chambron. This executive desk shows the fine craftsmanship and aesthetic characteristics of the work of this designer duo. The basic construction and clear shape give the piece a strong appearance. Due to the open frame the storage units and the top seem to be floating, which adds a certain lightness to the design. The front edge of the desk, where the user sits, is gently curved underneath. This is one of the refined details to be found in this model. Another nice detail is the rectangular inlay in the top. Due to the fairly large storage units this piece is highly functional as well. The drawer unit holds three well sized drawers, while the return element on the left has a sliding top to open and close when needed.
The French designer duo Jacques Chambron (1914-2001) and Robert Guillerme (1913-1990) started their production in the postwar period. Many of the furniture designed by this duo this shows a strong character and has great expressive woodwork. The duo installed themselves in an old factory where the machinery was used to make rifles. Guillerme & Chambron saw the potential of these machinery and decided to continue production as it was installed and used them for the design of their high back chairs. The line of different furniture pieces was made in small editions. They call their collection “Votre Maison” which means “Your home.”
