In the realm of design, some creations transcend fleeting trends to become timeless symbols. This year, we take pride in commemorating the ten years of an iconic masterpiece: the Asymmetry armchair, born from the creativity of the talented interior architect Pierre Yovanovitch and the craftsmanship of our upholstering workrooms.
On October 12th in Paris, the French interior architect inaugurated his new showroom located at 4 Passage Sainte-Avoye to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the creation of the Asymmetry. On this occasion, he unveiled a brand-new collection of pieces created in collaboration with the artist Claire Tabouret: a series of 10 unique armchairs, inspired by themes of childhood, movement, and fragility. The stitching of various textiles painted by Claire Tabouret was meticulously applied to each chair, evoking perpetual motion, much like a kite soaring in the sky.
The excellence and craftsmanship of French artisans were also showcased in this artistic collaboration, with the participation of the Manufacture Royale Bonvallet, the Atelier Caraco, and the Jouffre Workrooms.
The story of the Asymmetry is now an integral part of the history of both our houses. Beyond its popularity, the armchair embodies the perfect fusion of innovation and craftsmanship, serving as a constant reminder that true design is a balance of both aesthetics and function. In a decade, the Asymmetry armchair has become a staple in refined interiors, luxury hotels, and art galleries worldwide. It's not uncommon to spot it featured in leading design editorials or as the centerpiece at international design exhibitions.
