Marolles Stool $10,000>
Magen H Gallery

Jean Touret moved to Marolles in 1947. In Marolles, he deplored the taste of the general public for standardized, traditionally manufactured furniture, withdrawing work from local artisan and decided to create a group of craftsmen (a metalworker, a cabinet maker, a woodworker, a ceramist and a basket maker) from Marolles, of which he was the artistic director. Combining their talents, they collaboratively created a limited number of models for essential use (tables, chairs and lighting). With its chisel worked wood, very functional and minimalist design, this stool represents well the Marolles production at that time.
