This armchair is a reinterpretation of a wooden model used in India at the end of the 19th century, the so-called “British officers chair” produced in England until 1956. Its variable-tilt backrest guarantees a high level of comfort without any effort. . It was designed in 1928 for the furnishings of the Villa Church in Ville d'Avray and exhibited for the first time at the “Salon d'Automne des Artistes Décorateurs” in Paris in 1929. Charlotte Perriand said that: “Metal in furniture holds the same place as cement in architecture. It’s a revolution! On the seats, the combination of metal and leather creates a series of magnificent combinations and original aesthetic effects ”.
