Pair of armchair created for Steiner , an important innovative company during the 1930's to the 1970's , this pair is from the 1950's . Since the 1950s, Steiner has been recruiting designers who will make the company successful for the next 20 years.

Among these designers, we find Pierre Guariche, engaged in 1951, to whom we owe, among others, the molded Vampire armchair (1951), the Tonneau chair (1953) or the .Corb armchair (1956),this armchair set looks like the model FS 142 with the metal coil armature typical of this production , it has been attributed to Guariche.
