Dancing Chair is an elegant design project belonging to artist Constance Guisset. With an appearance that is eye-catching and original, the Dancing Chair is bold, to say the least. The base of the chair is constructed of bent, undulating pieces of wood. This gives it an almost ethereal look, very pleasant to observe. Constance went for a shell-like upholstered seating unit, that ensures a high degree of comfort. The product was also interpreted as a modern approach of the traditional rocking chair. Both the chair and footrest come with a removable textured fabric cover, for easy maintenance. The project is one of the 13 chosen ideas to be presented during the MAISON MEUBLE exhibition at the VIA stand. How do you appreciate the overall appearance of this unusual chair?

The String shelf system was designed in 1949 by the swedish architect and designer Nils Strinning. Easy to assemble and reposition, this well-formed system, with its ingenious design, is stable and functional. String® is available in several formats: the classic system, plex (launched in 1953), pocket (2005) and works (2014). The SH05 Arie shelf was designed by Arik Levy in 2008 for E15. The clever design enables a multitude of seamless combinations, made possible without any obvious visual repetition. Arie functions well as a bookcase, room divider, sideboard or storage unit.
