François Thevenin Chair


Born in 1931 in Cote d’Azur, François Thevenin is an exceptional architect, sculptor, and furniture designer who has worked primarily in metal and wood since his early start in the 1960s. Throughout his career, he has designed and created a wide range of objects, from chairs, to coffee tables, to lamps, door handles, and banister railings. His working process has tended away from cast-metal objects and towards the more intuitive and sculptural, but extremely labor-intensive method of hand- forged pieces. This means that some pieces have required over three hundred hours of manual labor. More significantly, however, such a working method demands that each piece be designed for a specific space. His furnishings are not meant to be reproduced, but to stand as singular, sculptural objects. His furniture bears the indelible mark of his hand, and calls into question the traditional divisions between the functional or decorative, and the fine arts.
