Luxurious and Sculptural Designs Change the Look of the Average Chair - by The Creators Project

Making a chair may not seem like a particularly creative task. Most designers use the basic, centuries-old model: a structure with a seat, some sort of back support, and legs. But some designers are pushing the envelope so far that it’s hard to tell if their creations even fall under the definition of the word “chair."

If you're used to your furniture sitting silently in the corner of your living room, designer Juliette Mutzke-Felippelli has an unusual proposition for you. Her iridescent French Touch chair comes with its very own mixtape. Featuring artists like Daft Punk, Cassius, and Etienne de Crecy, the playlist provides a reference for the '90s French house music the chair is mean to visually represent.

Il nome French Touch dice molto e non dice niente su questa sedia dall’afflato artistico ideata da Joogii. Si tratta di una proposta ispirata alla house music francese degli anni Novanta e la derivazione disco si nota soprattutto dalla finitura cangiante del materiale.

Blurring the lines between art and design, 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 and their legacy on modern electronic music. 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 constructed by layering disco samples with filters to create it’s distinctive sound. The flat surfaces and changing angles of the chair legs allows a luminous color spectrum to reveal itself at every turn.
