Teak showcase from a collection made by the A.R.P. workshop (Atelier de Recherches Plastiques) of designers Jacques-André Motte, Pierre Guariche and Michel Mortier, published by Minvielle in the 1950s. The piece of furniture is composed of 6 glass sliding doors with notches and two cabinets in the lower part opening by side doors discovering two storage spaces. The whole rests on four rectangular feet in black metal. The furniture has removable shelves inside the cabinets. Each shelf is held by four rubberized feet. This piece fits perfectly with the Mid-Century Modern aesthetic.


The acronym A.R.P. stands for Atelier de Recherches Plastique (atelier of Plastic research) . It is the union of three designers to shake up the codes of classicism and use technical and aesthetic innovations for a more rational design. This association began in 1954 with the impulse of mass-produced furniture that industrialization made accessible. Their innovative design proposals were produced by Charles Minvielle stores and won two prizes at the 1955 Salon des arts ménagers. Their collaboration ended in 1957 when the designers founded their own workshops.
