Observations on the Education of Children:And Hints to Young People on the Duties of Civil Life (Classic Reprint) James Mott
This ash and mahogany credenza bar was designed by Joseph Andre Motte in 1954 for ´Group 4, Charron,´ in France. The piece is complete with the original decorative brass key for the lockable bar compartment. The surrounding perimeter frame including the top and the legs are made of ash wood while the door and drawer fronts are made of mahogany wood. The original brass hardware; hinges, lock, key, and so on are all present. This minimalist piece reflects an organic and timeless Japanese Zen aesthetic, featuring delicate and sympathetic detailing such as the recessed circular finger pulls to the doors allowing the vertical plane of the doors to continue uninterrupted, and the simple, lightweight yet strong, sculptural form bentwood supporting legs. The credenza features two sliding doors; the left hand door conceals two shelves, and the right hand door conceals a single shelf; complete as per the original design allowing for the storage of items of varying height. There is a further drop down flap door to the upper right which conceals a lockable bar compartment, complete with the original brass key, which features a cut away shelf for the storage of glasses. This also allows for the storage of full height bottles. There are a further two drawers to the bottom right. Motte was one of a group of young designers who emerged immediately following the post-WW2 reconstruction period, dedicated to designing elegant and accessible furniture in a resolutely modern spirit, stripped of decoration, and produced in series. George Charron, a French furniture manufacturer, discovered Rene Jean Caillette’s work in 1950 and their meeting led to the creation of Group 4, a collaboration between Caillette, Joseph André Motte, Alain Richard, and Genevieve Dangles. This piece was shown in the exhibition ´Joseph Andre Motte - the Art of Living´ between 8.11.2012 and 2.9.2013, at the Demisch Danant gallery.
