D’Hauteville Concrete Armhair by Julie Legros & Henri Lavallard Boget

October 14th, 2015 by retail design blog

Raw yet refined, simple and bold, the classic D’Hauteville Concrete Chair is back in two new silhouettes. The relaxed armchair profile maintains the striking good looks of the original high chair with enhanced comfort.

Created by designers Julie Legros and Lavallard Boget, the seats draw inspiration from iconic mid-century design with a modern twist; stripped to the bare essentials, naked concrete – a mix of sand, water, and cement — paired with rebar legs evokes a rough, industrial vibe that provides bold contrast to the smooth, modern form. Versatile enough for practically any space, this minimal, brutalist design will leave an impression everywhere it goes. And their scrupulous construction can’t go unnoticed; despite the use of unconventionally harsh materials, Legros and Boget have molded an incredibly ergonomic seat while ultra-fine sanding gives it a smooth finish. D’Hauteville shows a unique appreciation for material and craftsmanship, elevating humble components through a modern lens. The new Armchair and Low Armchair are available exclusively in Gessato’s store.
