Great Brutalist dining chairs and table, with great natural expression. The style strongly reminds to the work of French Designer Charlotte Perriand and Pierre Jeanneret; there are no decorative elements, all attention is focused on the appearance of the natural wood and the simple construction of the heavy oak parts. The compact design and the thick material evokes a warm and secure atmosphere. All in fair condition; normal usermarks.

 

 

 

The term ‘Brutalism’ ( derives from the French word brut, meaning raw ) was coined to describe an architectural movement that emerged in the fifties of the 20th century. It has been adopted by the realms of art and design to refer to expressive, attention grabbing ‘naive’ creations made of rough, high relief materials that forms a contrast with the polished, smooth and sophisticated ( related artists are Paul Evans, Henrik Horst and Paul Kingma ).
