The Galaxie chair, otherwise known as the Zig-Zag chair, is an inimitable design by the French architect and designer Jacques-Henri Varichon (1945-present). Exhibited in 1969, these chairs were described by their creator as being “auto-suspendue” – self-suspended – by tension wires. The frame components don’t touch or transfer load to one another, so the sitter is held as if in a spider’s web stretched between branches. The result is a unique, and unexpectedly comfortable, seating experience.
Very good vintage condition, minor pitting to metal. Few strands to metal wiring breaking.
