Stunning cabinet, room divider designed by Michel Ducaroy, manufactured by Roche Bobois in France around 1970. This eye-catching piece has three strong aluminium supports and high quality brown plexiglass shelves, giving it a beautiful appearance. It could be used as a room divider or as a cabinet to make a great addition to every modern interior. It can be extended in height to 280 cm. In good original condition with minor wear consistent with age and use, preserving a beautiful patina. Michel Ducaroy was born in 1925, into a family of designers and furniture makers whose activities were split between private houses and larger-scale contracts (liners, exhibitions, official buildings). Drawing from his background he trained at the Ecole Nationale des Beaux Arts in Lyon, and in the family business, before branching out alone as an independent designer in 1952. In 1968 he designed one of the first modular all-foam chairs, the low-sitting Adria, and then amongst others Kashima and Safi, which had large cushions on a frame of altuglass.
