About

Joseph Andre Motte black tempo pair lounge chairs brass Mid-Century, France. Faux leather black chairs with brass base lounge chairs by Joseph Andre Motte. Sculptural shape. Edited by Steiner. Measures: Height: 27. Width: 22.5. Depth: 27. Seat height: 15.5". Seat depth: 18". Motte began his career as a furniture designer at the Bon Marché, one of the oldest Parisian department stores and cooperated with Marcel Gascoin’s workshop. In 1954, he founded his own agency and co-founded the Atelier de Recherche Plastique (Studio for Plastic Research) with Michel Mortier and Pierre Guariche. His prolific career let him rise to the top of postwar designers whose mission was to refurnish French homes with industrial materials and contemporary style, integrating modern forms with conventional techniques, using traditional and modern materials: Rattan, foam, plastic, Formica, plywood, stainless steel and glass. One chair base is tarnished on the base and will be regilded to make best effort to match the other chair base. Additionally, one chair has some structural issue which will also be restored.
