Michel Pigneres egg armchair lucite steel and velvet 1972

$ 16,000
  • Description
    This rare and distinctive egg chair is a creation by Michel Pigneres, dating back to 1972. It is crafted with a transparent altuglas shell, mounted on curved steel blades, attached together by four big flat screws. Its cushion has been reupholstered with a bold tiger-printed velvet from Luigi Bevilacqua. The materials chosen for the chair's structure, and of course its round shapes, are strong markers of the Space Age movement to which this creation by the French artist belongs. This piece is in great vintage condition, with very few scratches here and there on the lucite part, barely noticeable with this velvet fabric.

    Michel Pigneres is a French furniture designer born in the 20th century, renowned for his bold exploration of form and materials. He gained prominence in the 1970s for his distinctive creations, often characterised by daring patterns and unconventional materials, capturing the essence of the Space Age spirit. Today, his pieces, such as this lucite shell "egg chair", remain highly sought after, embodying Pigneres' timeless vision of design.
