Description

Demisch Danant
"

René Gabriel was part of a group of French designers, including Louis Sognot, Jacques Dumond and Marcel Gascoin, that revived Union des artistes modernes (UAM) principles in the 1940-50s, spearheading mass production of furniture in series. They became mentors to the next generation of designers, such as Pierre Guariche, René-Jean Caillette, and Joseph-André Motte, who were challenged by post-war society and proposed a new modern lifestyle with new materials and technology. Several variations of this model were made, depending on local production. Usually made of Ash or Oak, they were painted for special commissions; these chairs feature their original paint.
