love me tender chair by didier faustino for super ette

 

 

french creative didier faustino informs his work through the confluence of art, architecture and design – his latest piece ‘love me tender’ a veritable intersection of all these disciplines. the chair – designed in a limited edition version from brushed stainless steel for furniture company super-ette – attempts to subvert the idea of design, provoking its weaknesses through aggressive details. sharpness, smoothness and fluidity characterize ‘love me tender’ – the notion of conflict already articulated by the dichotomy between the chair’s title and aesthetic.

faustino describes his concept: ‘an item of furniture and a focus for questioning, ‘love me tender’ seeks to make the body newly aware of its most ordinary gestures.  a bare bones of a chair whose apparent flaws are the crux of its design. the body takes possession of a space on which it leaves its mark. living becomes a tiny but very real attack, a way of signaling one’s territory.’
