Charlotte Perriand Mahogany Cansado Wood Bench, circa 1962.

REF: 6028


"Candaso" model bench or daybed created by Charlotte Perriand, a true collector's item. Conceived for the company "MIFERMA", it furnished the apartments of its executives.

Its resolutely modern design makes it an essential piece that is easy to place in any interior, making it unique. The structure and the base are in black lacquered steel, topped by 13 mahogany slats.

The cushions are covered with a woolen cloth from Nobilis. Other fabrics are possible on request.

Provenance: Executives' house in the mining town of Cansado, Mauritania, town built in the 1960s by the Mauritanian Iron Mines Company "MIFERMA" to house its employees. Part of the furniture was designed by Charlotte Perriand between 1959 and 1967.

Manufacturer: Steph Simon, Circa 1959- 1967.
