'Bloc' Sideboard by Charlotte Perriand for Cité Cansado - 1950s
Sideboard 'Bloc' by Charlotte Perriand, a timeless piece designed for the mining town of Cansado in Mauritania. Composed of sturdy coreboard shelves veneered in a range of different woods, reinforced by sleek black lacquered sheet metal backs and side panels, this sideboard guarantees unparalleled rigidity.
