Marcel Breuer (Hungary/usa 1902-1981)

Two stacking cream white lacquered plywood side tables. Isokon UK.

Designed in 1936 Breuer whilst in the UK began to explore plywood as a material. During that period Breuer designed several classic modernist pieces that were put into production by Jack Pritchard of Isokon. We believe that these are a 60s production by John Alan. London.

Manufactured in the 1950s/60s.

Please note: We also have one other single table available – The table is a similar size to the larger one (…but is not the third one to the set) We believe that they were purchased from John Alan company in London in the 1960s where they sold individually (we have a John Alan pamphlet from the period to show this).

Vladimir Kagan (1927-2016 Ger/USA)

Two early edition ‘Capricorn’ chaise lounges. These chairs are in original vintage condition and would benefit from restoration from any prospective buyer. (We could have restored them but decided to leave them as they were).

One has been painted white and one is simply rusty at the moment – They would both look great when restored.

Alvar Aalto (Finland 1898-1976)

x2 Model 66 chairs and table

Finmar labels to the underside of the table and to one of the chairs (the other shows evidence of where the label once was).

Each piece has a very good period colour and shows patina of wear and tear as would be expected and hoped for. The Finmar labels are recognised evidence of them being early edition genuine 1930s examples.
