Functioning bookshelves titled Antiquity, replica of Venus d’Arles and mahogany wood with brass elements, from the series Functional Sculpture / Sculptural Furniture by New York based designer /artist Sebastian Errazuriz.
The original Venus d’Arles was a copy of the Aphrodite of Thespiae by Praxiteles, gift from Julius Caesar to the city of Arles, lost until unearthed in 17th century Versailles. Still today, the Louvre questions whether to place the work in Antiquities or its 17th Century galleries. She languishes in the storeroom, forever invisible (source)

The timeless mid 1930’s Nicolle chair and stool designed by French craftsman Jérôme Lepert and manufactured from the company of Paul Henry Nicolle. Originally designed as a robust, ergonomic and stackable seat for industry workers, Nicolle became very popular during the 1950’s French factories and workshops.
These days the range is still in production by Nicolle company and they claim to apply the same steel stamping and welding techniques, as were used for the original. The iconic whale tail backrest is always removable and the seats available in 4 heights. New addition is an optional leather seat pad (last image). Comes galvanized or in any RAL color.
