$7,700per set

About

Rare, chic pair of early French industrial / modernist lounge / Slipper chairs in tubular metal and red skai designed for the Paris headquarters of EDF-GDF by Jacques Hitier for Tubauto. The tubular metal structure has saber form rear legs and an open suspended seat and back structure that highlights its brilliant form. Labeled GDF/Paris on bottoms. Hitier was a leader of the industrial aesthetic and his spare, functional forms maintained a gracefulness and comfort that transformed thinking about design.

Bibliography: Jacques Hitier, Modernité industrielle, Pierre Gencey, Editions Piqpoq, 2013 pp 64, 84, 92.
