After relocating from England to New York, Robsjohn-Gibbons (1905-1976) would set up a showroom in Madison Avenue and quickly earned a reputation as a tastemaker among the city’s elite. His spare uncluttered designs were popular for their attempt to reconcile Art Deco whimsy with pure, classicist ideals. His designs were aligned with the ‚organic’ artists such as Pablo Picasso and Henry Moore.
Excellent vintage condition, new upholstery.
