Jean Gillon Jangada Lounge Chair with Ottoman

About

Jean Gillon, 'Jangada' armchair and ottoman, rosewood, nylon rope, leather, Brazil, 1968. This robust and hefty armchair is designed by Jean Gillon. The originality of this Janganda comes from the concept of the body being captured by the piece of furniture, which is constructed with a nylon mesh that resembles a fishing net. These details, the mesh but also the horizontal elements on top of the armrests result in a machine-like strong object. The legs are all thick and sturdy and tapered towards the end. On various places, the vertical elements are connected with horizontal slats. Jean Gillon (1919-2007) was borne in Romania where he studied at the School of Fine Arts and Architecture. In 1956 he immigrated to Brazil where he established himself as an interior architect, Industrial designer, and artist. In 1961 he founded the Cidam furniture factory. Here he completed his lines of furniture and decoration objects. From 1964 he became well-known in the international market. Literature: Móvel. Brasileiro Moderno. Brasil: FGV Projectos, 2012, p. 255. Please note that the leather shows signs of age and use such as cracks and patina. We advise to reupholstery.
