Pair of chairs by André Sornay, cabinetmaker from Lyon: originally designed as office chairs, they will be a nice addition to a dining table.
A fine example of the ingenuity of André Sornay, who was one of the precursors of kit furniture at the end of the 1950s, they are made of box joinded ash. The seat and backrest have been repainted in black.
Manufacturer: Sornay Meubles, Lyon, circa 1955.
