André Sornay, Important Set of Six Walnut & Leather Dining Chairs, France 1930's

About

André Sornay (1902 – 2000) Elegant set of six minimalist, pure-lined dining chairs by André Sornay, with subtly curved and tapered backs and legs. In French walnut with seats upholstered in warm burnt umber leather. The chairs' clean, resolutely modern lines and harmonious geometry are emblematic of Sornay's approach, which revolutionized and democratized French design beginning in the 1920's — some time before the 1929 founding of the Union des Artistes Modernes by Robert Mallet-Stevens, Charlotte Perriand, and Jean Prouvé, who shared many of Sornay's goals. France, 1930's. Several chairs stamped “A. Sornay.” Literature: "Signé Sornay," Galerie Alain Marcelpoil, p.261.
