Rocky Credenza

by Charles Kalpakian

In Stock


Rocky, by Charles Kalpakian for La Chance, is a sculptural piece. It can be used as a console or a credenza, but will also accommodate books and objects to become the most graphic display or bookshelf. Designer Charles Kalpakian plays with our perception of space and volume with an object that reveals itself and changes according to the observer’s point of view. Rocky is made by one artisan who bends and wields each sheet of steel together. The result is a seemingly monolithic yet light sculpture that is patiently polished before it gets its signature textured epoxy laquer.

La Chance gives a contemporary interpretation of the ornamental and decorative French furniture tradition rooted in the Art Deco period. La Chance works with high qualified artisans to offer the best quality products.
