This piece by René Gabriel is emblematic of the French post-war period known as "reconstruction.” In this period, a host of designers stepped up to the need to rebuild the country and house hundreds of thousands of displaced citizens. Simple and practical furniture resulted to satisfy the needs of their users, made of the materials available post-war.
