ELEGANT SHAPE ROOTED IN SIMPLICITY
One of Marcel Gascoin’s most well-known pieces, the C-Chair Dining Chair, was designed in 1947. The chair represents not only the aesthetic and practical power of Gascoin’s designs but also the social conscience he strongly demonstrated through the post-war years in France. The C-Chair was originally created out of necessity to fit into the new sizes of homes built at the end of World War II, where Gascoin made up for the lack of space by creating simple, functional furniture.
HIGH-QUALITY WOODEN WORKMANSHIP
Cleverly designed with great attention to detail, the C-Chair possesses an elegant shape yet sturdy construction rooted in a simple, minimal, and strong design language. Characterized by voluminous and vigorous legs juxtaposed by an inviting seat in lighter material like cane, straw, or fabric, the quality of the C-Chair reveals itself through modern lines, sobriety, and high-quality wooden workmanship.
Marcel Gascoin was one of the leading designers in postwar Europe. Innovative and with a strong social conscience, Gascoin’s democratic design connected art with industry and functional aesthetics with rational manufacturing processes. Even today, Gascoin’s furniture is praised for its simple lines, minimalist aesthetics, and compact modular design that makes optimal use of space.
GASCOIN TABLE COLLECTION
Gascoin’s strive to combine functionality and elegant design is evident in the s-table. The traditional oversized, ornate style is replaced by simple tapered legs, sturdy frame, and space-efficient rectangular tabletop.
