Christophe Pillet designs a chair that is timeless, universal and radically simplified in its design.
Memory Lane’s elegance lies in its outright rejection of any hint of complexity. The slender metal structure and sophisticated top-stitched upholstery, with elastic webbing visible on the back of the seat, make it a true declaration of simplicity. A chair designed for the contract market, where beauty and comfort stylishly coexist.
This lodestar in French design gained a Master’s degree in Design in Milan in 1985, before working with Philip Starck in Paris from 1988 to 1993, after which he set up his own independent, eclectic business, featuring his hallmark style – simple, strong, and to the point – be it in architecture or interior design, furniture, fashion or industrial design. Winner of the French “Créateur de l’année” award in 1994, Pillet works with some of the biggest names in contemporary furniture design.
