Set  of 6 chairs created in 1947 in the manner of  Maxime Old  , built with solid oak , its style finds its  roots before WW2 but become dominant between 1945 and 1955.

This set was found in Le Havre which was a hot bed of creation for  Gabriel and Old during the reconstruction after the war damage ( 1947-1962)   . Old was a mentor for a lot of young designer like Guariche , Motte , Dangles ,  Paulin in their understanding of the social implication of the UAM movement ( Le  Corbusier and Mallet-Steven founder)
