The story of this chair begins in 1986, when Jean-Michel Wilmotte won a competition launched by the “gardens” department of the Caisse Nationale des Monuments Historiques et des Sites. His project involved redesigning Peynet’s kissing chair (a garden chair with traditional scrolls) to create a more contemporary, functional and practical folding version, while keeping the steel wire frame of the original model.
Sixty copies of it were made for the Palais Royal, and it has often been “borrowed” since. The idea behind this re-release is to return to the original proportions but to use tube for lightness.
