Pair of Bar Stools by Audoux-Minet

About

A pair woven abaca and beechwood bar stools by Audoux-Minet, (Adrien Audoux and Frida Minnet) France, circa 1950. History: Union des Artistes Modernes (UAM) was established in 1929 by a group of Modernist designers including, among others, Charlotte Perriand, Francis Jourdain, Louis Sognot and Pierre Chareau. This group was founded as a reaction to the design ethic of the Societe´ des Artistes Decorateurs (SAD) of which many of the UAM designers were originally members. As was evident in the Paris Exposition des Arts De´coratifs et Industriels in 1925, there was a tendency to cater to the wealthy elite of Paris and members of the SAD (Follot, Dufrene, Herbst etc.) created expensive pieces to satisfy the lavish taste of their clientele. The UAM were committed to a design ethic based upon new, accessible materials and technologies, representing the realities of modern life. The innovative use of cheap materials such as sea grass, rush, pine, tubular metal, along with techniques such as lamination, created a fresh approach to design which was accessible to a broader demographic. Audoux-Minet's designs fit perfectly with the UAM paradigm and they became contributing members. The most recognisable designs by Audoux-Minet were simple frames clad in woven abaca, designed for the company Vibo Vesoul. Audoux-Minet also had a retail outlet in Golfe-Juan; this Provencal coastal town bordered Vallauris, where Picasso was working at the time. This area became a hotbed of artistic creativity, not to mention a destination for affluent travellers. Audoux-Minet would have claimed that they were drawn to Golfe-Juan by its artistic reputation and not the wealthy clientele, which would have contradicted the UAM manifesto. However, this would have certainly been a convenient bonus.
