Designer

This model designed by Le Corbusier (1887-1965) is a kitchen buffet with serving hatch. Le Corbusier chose Pierre Guariche to furbish the Firminy' Housing Unit, one of the 4 "Unités d'habitation" conceived after the Second World War, whose construction began just before Le Corbusier died in 1965.

This beautiful piece is made of mahogany and white lacquered plywood. It was directly sourced from the building in its original condition and shows magnificent patina finish.
