Sale price$1,975.00

Pierre Guariche for Meurop, set of six 'Coquillage' dining chairs, lacquered steel, red propylene, France, 1960s.

Pierre Guariche (1926-1995), a multi-talented French designer, interior decorator, and architect left an indelible mark on the world of design. His notable contributions include his pioneering work in residential lighting design for Pierre Disderot during the 1950s, which cemented his position as a master of the craft. However, Guariche's talents extended beyond lighting, as he also made significant innovations in the fields of furniture design and architecture. This design is part of the 'Coquillage' series and is typical for the aesthetics and philosophy of Guariche. He was an architect first and foremost and focussed mainly on shape and form. One of his other ideals was his commitment to create simplistic, affordable and thus industrial furniture. This set of 'shell' chairs are an excellent example as they are playful and effective by means of simple design interventions such as the patterned punching of the seat.
