Charlotte Perriand Cansado Bench

This slatted bench is simple in its form and function, yet beautifully modern and timeless. From the mining town of Cansado in Mauritania, it was originally made for the flat of Miferma's engineers.

Retaining its original slats, the mahogany wood shows a stunning patina that is rare for this bench.
