amédée is a settee and armchair combination, designed around a lumbar support which is quilted and stitched just like the bucket seats of the best Italian motor cars. the armchair may be rotating, and there is also a footstool for when it’s time to relax. chic, urban and thus compact, this family of seating acquires undeniable luxury object status when upholstered in the new full grain, pure aniline orga leather, with its slightly smooth, glossy finish.
anda envelops and supports the body perfectly. anda outstrips the archetype of the historical 'fauteuil crapaud' (squat armchair) by offering a totally new shape - offered, for optimum comfort, in both low and high-backed version, complemented by a footstool.
andy seems set to be a great classic, bearing as it does the imprint of pierre paulin. as a precious refinement, he mounted the chromed steel legs inside the armrests both to the front and to the rear, a touch which was just as elegant when viewed from the front as from the rear: inserting the leg into the armrest necessitated more meticulous stitching and upholstery for a perfect finish.
the backpack armchair derives its distinctive personality from the slim, elegant structure/base which is the perfect foil for the perfectly-designed silhouette of its welcomingly thick and ergonomically-curved seat/back cushion. at the top of the back, the cushion rolls over on itself and is held in place by a strap on its back (red or black) which is evocative of the kind of backpack used by the explorers of yesteryear.
ligne roset was able to work on the reissue of the bonnie seating using a real collector’s item, one of only a few very rare examples in existence (modèles 500 and 500/2 – design 1975). from the outset, the bonnie seating was striking in terms of its comfort, both visual and real, hugging the lines of the human body fiercely. the bonnie seating is at once extremely comfortable and also clever, without being too clever.
enki is the first seating evangelos vasileiou has designed for ligne roset. intended to respond to multiple requirements, its pure, elegant lines lend themselves to both stand-alone seating and corner compositions, with a range of 18 items in total. to make it possible to tailor both looks and comfort, there is a choice between 2 leg heights (10cm or 13cm), giving a seat height of either 41cm or 44cm, and a choice of 2 heights for the back cushions.
the magic of facett will touch all those who desire purity, without compromising on the perfection of the design. compare for example the minimalist simplicity of its monolithic form with the ultra-sophisticated work involved in its realisation - in particular the stitching (toning or contrasting), the complexity of which recalls the cutting and shaping of a precious stone, or even the complex folds of origami.
comfortable, easy on the eye and very easy to accommodate - occupying a square-shaped space of around 75 cm2 - it will fit into interiors of all styles. slipped into a contemporary setting, the parallel glimpses it provides of the knowledge and skills of times past and the living aspect of natural walnut combine to bring a touch of warmth.
if the term hémicycle might be evocative of the assemblée nationale, it was also chosen for its completely different geometrical connotation. the use of this straight seat must also be well suited to use in institutions, public spaces or more traditional habitations. it represents a classically-styled welcoming place capable of travelling between the highest echelons of power and the intimacy of a contemporary apartment.
evangelos vasileiou is revisiting the 1950s with his very appropriately-named humphrey armchair, which is just as classically chiselled as the famous of the famous actor. accompanied by its footrest, it becomes a chaise longue. plomb-coloured metal base; seat in leather or fabric; armrests in natural or black-stained oak – and all this at an accessible price.
stool with base in clear varnished forged steel and foam seat upholstered in cloud marine 64 or cloud cerise 101 (attractive prices). also available to order in fabric version.
less deep and slightly narrower at the base, it is very light in appearance. its personality springs from the thin cord which runs around and through it to give it such an elegant appearance. since he knows japan so well, he has no doubt drawn inspiration from japanese art, in particular shibari ... in terms of interior arrangement, one should ensure that lace is displayed in a range of different versions.
