French designers Adrien Audoux & Frida Minet were committed to a design ethos based on accessible materials as a means of serving modern life. In reaction to the Paris Exposition des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels of 1925, which they deemed to only cater to a wealthy elite they set to ground their designs in something more homespun, even rustic. Their designs for Vibo Vesoul, produced using seagrass rope cord, became their leitmotiv – now highly sought after.
This armchair sums up their humble ambitions, using the natural beauty of bent oak and rope. The wood has been sensitively restored to a lovely patina. Rope in original condition with minor losses.
