"French Touch" designed by Juliette Mutzke-Felippelli
French Touch is an art chair inspired by French house music during the 1990’s, paying homage to experimental artists like Daft Punk, Cassius and Etienne de Crecy. Designed and manufactured in Los Angeles, the French Touch is composed of dichroic film applied to CNC-cut acrylic and is connected by steel bolts. Naturally interactive with light, the dichroic application is combined with puzzle-like lap joints as part of a conceptual demonstration of the way tracks during the period were produced by combining disco samples with filters to create it's distinctive sound. The construction of the chair allows a luminous color spectrum to reveal itself at every angle.
The sensory experience widens via sound in a mix of tracks selected by Juliette that embody the zeitgeist of 1990's French house music. Enjoy it here:
