Vintage Impressive Chair by Man Ray for Simon Ultramobile

About

Le Temoin is a wonderful furniture piece realized by Man Ray for Simon Ultramobile. Armchair in perspex and vinyl upholstery. Le Temoin was designed by Man Ray for Gavina's Ultramobile Exhibition. It can be used 'eye down' as a regular stool, or 'eye up' as a coffee table, vertically as a rocking stool. But it can also be used simply as a work of art! This amazing object was created as part of the Ultramobile operation conceived by Dino Gavina in 1971 with the aim of surprisingly adapting the Surrealist object to everyday use, bringing a poetic presence into our homes. Dino Gavina founded his firm Simon in 1968 in order to produce innovative furniture designs of contemporary designers in an industrially series. Simon became very famous for its three editions: Ultrarazionale (1968), Ultramobile (1971), and Metamobile (1974). The Ultramobile-Collection has assembled many surrealist pieces of furniture paying homage to artists such as René Magritte, Constantin Brancusi, Man Ray, Sebastián Matta, etc. Reference: - Domus, n. 524, July 1973, p. 41. - Virgilio Vercelloni, L'avventura del Design, Gavina Yacabook, MILANO 1987, tav. 122.
