Pair of Chairs by René Herbst

Description
Decisive lines meet a chameleon-like material. This pair of 1935 chairs by French architect and designer René Herbst is a reminder of the virtues of close looking. What at first glance reads as a playful yet familiar pairing of black and white is, upon further observation, a deep, moody green set against cream-colored enamel. The unfamiliar quality of the rich green seats, arms, and backs stems in part from their material—Bakelite, an early plastic that can shift in tonality depending on the light and one’s perspective. These chairs are stamped 1935 and in good vintage condition.
