Pair of Fauteuils Attributed to Jacques Adnet for Air France Boardroom


Incredibly handsome pair of chairs for dining, desk or occasional seating with dramatic Star Trek chromed steel base and woven wool upholstery. According to our research these chairs were designed as a special private commission from the then president of Air France for the new executive boardroom circa 1960. This chair may even have been the inspiration for the Concorde! It is possible to attach the base pointing forward or backward. Shown here both ways. It MAY be possible to attach a swivel mechanism. Sold only as a pair.
