Beaubourg chairs, set of six
19½ w × 20 d × 30 h in (50 × 51 × 76 cm)
The Beaubourg chair was conceived by Richard Rogers and Renzo Piano and designed specifically for the Pompidou Center in Paris. The final form was created by Cadestin and Laurent and chosen as the winning chair for the commission by a jury headed by Jean Prouve. The building, designed by Rogers and Piano, has become one of the most important buildings of the late twentieth century, ushering in Deconstruction and Post Modernism in architecture and design.
