Charlotte Perriand custom-made elm desk

Price Upon Request
  • Description
    A unique, custom-made solid elm desk by Charlotte Perriand, made for Henri James, who was the technical director of the Duval factory in Saint-Dié, France. The factory was designed by Le Corbusier in 1946 and Perriand, with whom he frequently collaborated, designed a larger version of the desk for the building and this smaller desk for James' home office.

    The desk has a curved top and stands on three oval legs, two small and one large. Underneath it has a veneered wooden block with drawers, still labeled 'James-Henri'.’ Apart from the size, the integrated block with drawers is an element that distinguishes this desk from the one at the factory. However, the craftsmanship and use of materials on the block are very similar to that of the desk. The block must have been made at the same time of the desk and likely by the same craftsman.

    The authenticity of the desk was confirmed by Henri James’ son.
