Lot Essay

This three-seater model is featured as 'Banquette type Antony' in an Ateliers de construction préfabriquée de Maxéville technical drawing dated April 8, 1957. The metal frame, derived from the 'Antony' Chair, model no. 356, was adapted to seat 3-9 people in the public areas of the Cité Universitaire in Antony, France. Other examples of the 'Banquette' were executed for the Hachette Pavillion at the 1958 Brussels World’s Fair, which was entirely furnished with designs by Jean Prouvé and Charlotte Perriand.
