French Mid-century Modern SpaceAge Galaxy Zig-Zag Floating Lounge Chair Varichon

About

Exceedingly rare chair by Jacque Henri Varichon. 1968. 1st edition. Original black canvas. (The later Second edition, 1970, was leather). Listing is for one chair. To purchase the pair , pls change quantity prior to check out. The "Galaxie" (or Zig-Zag) tension lounge chairs by Jacques-Henri Varichon are iconic for their unusually comfortable structure. The whole chair is secured in place by tension wires. None of the non "wire" parts touch or transfer weight. Varichon, an architect by trade, famously described this as "auto-suspendue." Fantastic, verging on magical. 49 " W x 30 " D x 28' H (seat height about 15")
