Pair of low chairs called "La cachette" in oak, 1960s/70s, attributed to Charlotte Perriand. These seats come from the La Cachette residence, located in the Les Arcs 1600 ski resort in the French Alps. Charlotte Perriand, famous French architect and designer, led the creation of the Les Arcs ski resort from 1967 to 1989. She was responsible for the town planning and architecture of the buildings, as well as the interior design and furniture . At the time, very large buildings were created, with a large number of apartments, including a residence called La Cachette, which has now become a luxury hotel. These heaters come from this building and were present in the apartments. This may not be a design by Charlotte Perriand, hence the "attributed to" notation, but it is certainly a choice and selection by Charlotte Perriand, who oversaw the interior decoration of apartments and buildings, for which she created numerous pieces of furniture and lighting. "When a thing exists, I don't see why I would do it. But if it doesn't exist, if I need it, I create it" from: Conversation of Charlotte Perriand with Marie Dedieu 1982 (Charlotte Perriand, Une mountain architect, Jacques Barsac, Editions Norma) The oak structures were carefully sanded to remove worn varnish and then oiled for better natural protection. The cushions have been completely redone with new foam and 100% pure wool textile. The files are easily removable to save space during transport. (The price is for the pair) L: 68cm D: 75cm H: 81cm
