Charlotte Perriand Bench, from Cité Cansado, Cansado 1958
Stunning slate bench in mahogany and steel designed by Charlotte Perriand for Cité Cansado, Mauritania. Striking original piece with patina consistent with age and usage. The wood feet have been added later. The wood has some scratches, bursts and the frame has some rust.
