Pair of Industrial Mid-Century Modern Lounge Chairs by Jacques Hitier, 1955

About

Rare, chic pair of early French industrial Mid-Century Modern 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. Exhibition: Salon Tubauto, Salon des Arts Ménagers de 1957. Espace d'accueil à l'Exposition Internationale, Bruxelles, 1958. Bibliography: Jacques Hitier, Modernité industrielle, Pierre Gencey, Editions Piqpoq, 2013 pp 64, 84, 92. Other references: Pierre Guariche, Jean Prouve, Mathieu Mategot, Marcel Breuer, Le Corbusier, Jeanneret.
