  • “Orchidée” Lounge Chair by Michel Cadestin for Airborne, France, 1968
    By Michel Cadestin
    Located in Utrecht, NL
    This large fiberglass lounge chair, the “Orchidée” was one of the Cadestin models that were ordered by the Centre Pompidou Museum. The design dates to 1968 and was manufactured by Airborne International. This chair stands out both in terms of size, as well as its design. While the fiberglass base provides a modern look, the upholstered seat, back and armrests give the chair a cosy feel. With the folding top of the seat and armrests, the chair resembles the shape of an orchid flower, which is where the model’s name derives from. The chair has been reupholstered in a cognac colored full aniline leather, which gives a nice contrast to the white fiberglass base. Thanks to its impressive size and soft fabric, this chair is perfect for lounging while also adding an eye-catching visual element to any space. Among the models Cadestin designed for the Center Georges Pompidou, the Orchid is one of the most outstanding pieces. Condition: In good vintage condition. Some minor scratches on the fiberglass base. Recently reupholstered in premium aniline leather. Dimensions: 35.43 in W x 40.94 in D x 37.79 in H, seat height 15.15 in 90 cm W x 104 cm D x 96 cm H, seat height 38.5 cm About the designer: Michel Cadestin was born in France in 1942.
