Set of 5 Tubular Dining Chairs attrb. Djo Bourgeois, France, c.1930
A set of early Modernist dining chairs attributed to Georges ‘Djo’ Bourgeois.
During his relatively brief life and career, Georges ‘Djo’ Bourgeois regularly exhibited at Paris’ Salon d’Automne having first been invited by Robert Mallet-Stevens at the age of 24. He collaborated with Charlotte Perriand and Rene Herbst to design a four room model apartment and often joined forces with his wife Élise, an artist, that designed the textiles for many of his interiors.
An image of this design appears in Anne Bony's publication 'Djo Bourgeois'.
