Fil Noir

Fil Noir

This project is built around the concept of a thread (which gives it its name, “fil” in French), a distinctive design feature that is a metaphor for continuity. The “thread” is what gives character to this chair, not only outlining its silhouette, but actually supporting and enveloping it. And the thread also conveys a specific design choice: the decision to use metal tubing. The design is perfected by the company’s know-how, which is tangible in the choice of details: upholstery in putty-coloured Berry fabric; high rubber-content elastic belts; goose down filling; fire-resistant polyurethane foam. These meticulous choices are emblematic of the sartorial craftsmanship that has gone into making this chair.
