  • Coffee Table "Prefacto" by Pierre Guariche, Airborne, 1952
    By Pierre Guariche
    Located in PARIS, FR
    Coffee Table "Prefacto" by Pierre Guariche, Airborne 1952 ln 1951, inspired by folded, bent and curved steel tubes combined with wood, Guariche designed Préfacto, a furniture programme that could be dismantled. For the production subsidiary destined for Airborne communities, Pierre Guariche created a line that broke down into three elements: a coffee table, a chair and a wing chair. Thanks to this material that was used by industry, he could produce objects in large series. Aesthetic, functional and economical furniture was suited to the reduced size of post-war apartments. The forms were free, the lines curved and the irregular breaks challenged strict functionalism. This coffee is composed of an oak wood top and a base in tubular steel. Pierre Guariche (1926 - 1995) is one of the mythical French designers of the 1950s who made his mark on his era with pieces of pure aestheticism, functional and accessible. A graduate of the École nationale supérieure des Arts décoratifs, he published his first models on his own, including the famous Rotaflex lamp, which he exhibited at the Salon des Arts ménagers and then the Salon des Artistes décorateurs. It was a great success with the public and quickly aroused the interest of publishers. Pierre Guariche then created furniture, lighting and decorative objects for Airborne, Pierre Disderot and Steiner. In 1954, he also joined forces with the decorators Michel Mortier and Joseph-André Motte, with whom he founded the Atelier de recherche plastique. The ARP then devoted itself to the creation of furniture for the living room, dining room and bedroom for Charles Minvielle. At the end of the 1950s, as artistic director of the Belgian furniture manufacturing company Meurop, he gradually turned to interior design. In 1965 he received the René Gabriel prize. Pierre Guariche's original creations have become iconic pieces such as the Amsterdam chair...
