award winning french designer françois azambourg has created ‘grillage’ for contemporary company ligne roset. the collection of armchairs – which will soon see the addition of new forms – was recently on show at maison et objet in paris, france. the all-metal chair employs a mixture of techniques and applied arts to create the origami-like form. one piece of sheet metal is drawn through a milling machine to create a wire mesh which is then delicately folded and creased to create the seat. bent steel legs follow the lines of the reclining seat and are finished in either black or blue to match the body. an optional quilted cover features hidden magnets that allow the cushion to securely hug the face of the chair for extra comfort.
