'Bloc' Sideboard by Charlotte Perriand for Cité Cansado - 1950s

login first to see price


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. The innovative perforated side panels elegantly accommodate racks for shelves or drawers. To ensure seamless functionality, the smooth sliding doors are expertly crafted from melamine over masonite, providing a silent and effortless glide.

For Perriand, storage was not just a practical concern but a means to achieve harmony and clarity in living spaces. Embracing the mantra "Create emptiness," she championed the idea that liberating space allowed for deeper contemplation and movement. This sideboard represents her vision, a masterpiece preserved in its original condition, boasting a natural patina that speaks of its history and authentic charm, a true testament to the enduring allure of Charlotte Perriand's design philosophy.
