Additional Information

“The Philippon and Lecoq glass desk was originally designed in 1959 in a simpler configuration. In 1967, the Mobilier National under Atelier de Recherche et de Création, commissioned Philippon and Lecoq to design a desk series using the same technical principal and material. The first models, made by the Mobilier National, furnished the offices of the French Pavilion of the international exhibition of Montreal in 1967.

The desk presented came from this commission, which had remained in Montreal since 1967. ”
