Designer: Inga Sempé for Ligne Roset
Beau fixe is the simple assembly of two complementary pieces : a metal structure and a quilt. The structure functions like a giant clamp which holds the one-piece quilt in the jaws formed from the main uprights. These jaws segment it and fold it into the rectangular panels which form the armrests, seat, back and 'ears'.
If the collection reminds one of the seats of cars or aeroplanes, it does so in a simple, airy fashion; the whole thing is held above the ground by slender legs; the seat and high, soft back surrounded by full-length 'ears' and high armrests envelop the user in a micro-climate.
Available in a range of fabric options.
Also available as a sofa.
