  • Catalogue Essay

    Paul Cauchie, an architect, and his wife Caroline Voet, a painter, were married in 1905. The house is emblematic of a Japanese concept of space and time in which the architecture alternates between solid and void. Cauchie is considered to be the only architect in Belgium directly influenced by Charles Rennie Mackintosh and the Glasgow School. The present tabouret and the house illustrated here are from the same period in Brussels.

    Phillips wishes to thank Professor Werner Adriaenssens for assisting with the cataloguing of this lot.
