  • Description
    This exceptional pair of "Village" lounge chairs was designed by Jean Gillon, a celebrated artist and designer known for his groundbreaking contributions to midcentury Brazilian design. Gillon's "Jangada" and "Amazonas" lounge chairs are other examples of his exceptional work that feature the use of netting, a signature feature that sets them apart from other midcentury designs.

    The "Village" chairs, like the "Jangada" and "Amazonas" chairs, embody Gillon's remarkable sense of artistry and craftsmanship, with their structure made from solid walnut and net, imbuing them with a sense of sturdiness and durability. The stunning upholstery has been carefully crafted from natural suede, lending a touch of contemporary luxury to the chairs' overall aesthetic. Jean Gillon was a Romanian artist who spent a significant portion of his life in Brazil (1919-2007, São Paulo). After relocating to São Paulo in 1956, he established Móveis Cidam Furniture in 1961. In addition to furniture, he also designed special tapestries and housewares, creating an exceptional legacy that has earned him a prominent place in the history of Brazilian design.

    Throughout his career, Gillon drew inspiration from the natural beauty and cultural richness of Brazil, with jacaranda Brazilian rosewood being a material frequently used in his work. His innovative and distinctive pieces have won numerous accolades and are now featured in museums, hotels, institutions, and collections around the world.

    This exceptional pair of "Village" lounge chairs is a rare opportunity to own a piece of Brazilian design history while enjoying the exceptional beauty and unmatched craftsmanship of Jean Gillon's timeless designs. These chairs represent a remarkable legacy of midcentury Brazilian design and the enduring appeal of Gillon's exceptional talent and creativity.
