About this desk table called "Gerard Philippe" by Jules Wabbes (Beligum)

Solid laminated Padouk desk resting on 4 steel legs with "gun barrel" color patina.
Under the top, there are three storage spaces.
The model takes its name from the actor Gérard Philipe (F) (Gérard Albert Philip 1922 - 1959) who was the model's first customer.
Jules Wabbes therefore decided to name the piece of furniture after this actor.
The piece of furniture is accompanied by the certificate of authenticity signed by Marie Wabbes, daughter and beneficiary of the artist.
Thanks to its compact dimensions, this desk can also be used as a console.
