Within the almost 30 years of its existence, French design company Fermob has achieved numerous references and its products have been featured in iconic spots globally and of course in innumerable private and public spaces. As an attempt to bring together its past and its present, Fermob launched recently a new collection called “Idoles”. Designers like Patrick Jouin, Pascal Mourgue and Christophe Pillet reinterpreted iconic pieces giving them a fresh, new allure. The Kate armchair (above) was first launched in 1998 and designer Patrick Jouin revisited this “haute couture” seat made of soft sheet steel. Its backrest develops a complex system of irregular perforations that is simply amazing!
Emphasizing the independence of the parts, design agency Delo Lindo created Odéon, recalling the cabinet minister’s chair. Double surface, double color, shaped steel sheet, tube and wire in a surprisingly elegant armchair!
The TNP armchair was designed by Christophe Pillet for the Villeurbanne Théâtre National Populaire in 2011. Using the functional curves of the initial product, the designer submitted this chair as part of the Idoles collection, using metal and of course high quality!
Lune d’Argent is an awarded chair, a combination of art, sculpture and object that designer Pascal Mourgue created, paying homage to the industrial quality. An iconic and ultra contemporary piece that will make your outdoor spaces unique!
Andree and Olivia Putman‘s Inside Out table couldn’t be missing from the Idoles collection. A versatile piece made of steel and aluminum that works great both indoors and outdoors with its elegant and timeless design. The homonymous chairs by the designer duo (photo below) using ribbon inspired by safety belts from an aircraft, as they were inspired by the Concorde which was also designed by them make the striking Inside Out chairs a must-have!
If Palais Royal chair reminds you of something, then it is definitely the homonymous building in Paris from which it took its name and where is is featured. Jean-Michel Wilmotte relaunched this statement awarded piece with steel wire frame for the Idoles collection using tube for lightness.
Strong design and neutrality are the main characteristic of the Mendès chair by Christophe Pillet. Give it a closer look, its design is really unique!
