These club chairs were made by Comte in Argentina, after a design by Jean-Michel Frank, for the National Bridge Club in Buenos Aires.Oak, mahogany and black leather.Argentina
Early versions of this design by Frank are illustrated in Pierre-Emmanuel Martin-Vivier, Jean-Michel Frank, page 39 and also page 141, respectively of a studio photograph from 1925 and in a working model of the unrealised Pebble Beach villa for Templeton Crocker.
Another example of this particular model can be seen in the contemporary photographs of the “Petit Hotel” townhouse in Buenos Aires, published in Revista de Arquitectura magazine, in May 1935. This striking and, for Argentina, avant-garde home was built by the architects Moreno and Tivoli, partners in Comte Ltda, and the interiors furnished by Comte under the direction of Ignacio Pirovano.
This is one of the earliest documented commissions of Comte working with Jean-Michel Frank’s designs, one earlier example ( 1932-33) being the apartment of Jacques “Santiago” Soulas, the Franco-Argentine multi-millionaire. In this article, along with the current chairs, can also be seen Frank’s Comfortable club chairs and one of his Smoker tables.
