Designer Charlotte Perriand
Charlotte Perriand designed this stackable low table in 1953 for the Tokyo home of her husband Jacques Martin (J.M.), the head of Air France in Japan. It can be used in a number of ways: as an occasional table close to a sofa, or a low table combined with small tabourets Berger stools. It belongs to that group of rare objects that adapt to diversifi ed uses that become evident in time. This makeover sought to give body to this object, embellishing it with a very intricate working of the saddleleather. The structure is in moulded glassreinforced plastic, onto which the saddle-leather is then sewn and fi tted, all procedures carried out strictly by hand just like saddle making. The saddle-leather upholstery comes in a wide range of colours with matching stitching and edging.
