70s oak and wicker lounge fauteuil set/2
Brutalism is a movement within architecture that originated from modernism. It is characterized by often large block-like structures and rough material. Because of its bombastic, sometimes intimidating appearance, brutalism was mainly used for large public buildings, such as concert halls, libraries, courts and town halls. It is a style that often provokes opinion and had its heyday from the 50s to the 70s of the twentieth century in terms of building design. But in furniture architecture this is a bit different.
The interfaces in design are clear. Angular, heavy and original raw material, as a kind of counterpart to all veneer products from the sixties, a lot of brutalist furniture was also made until the seventies. However, in the range of furniture made of original solid wood, the style is spread much wider over time. Even furniture from the 1930s can be labeled brutalist as long as it is solid or natural material and often angular and heavy.
This brutalist unique set of 2 lounge chairs are directed to the years 1960-1970 and found their origin in France. Massive oak frames with wicker decorated seat and backrest. The chairs are in good condition consistent with age and use.
