The Award Winners
Here they are: the 29 innovations Stylepark awards at the Salone del Mobile 2018 as part of Stylepark Selected.
With this piece, Patrick Jouin takes a new look at the iconic Facto chair, his very first piece, which first entered the Fermob catalogue back in 1998. It is an outdoor seat with a simple silhouette and made from a single material: soft sheet steel. Patri
ck uses these features to create a delightful, elegant, simple and welcoming armchair that is both practical and comfortable.
The shell backrest features a complex system of irregular perforations, which spread out in a harmonious pattern to create the
illusion of perfect curves, with the largest perforations located at the centre of the backrest and the smallest ones situated at the top and bottom of the frame. The legs and armrests are each made from a single, curved metal tube and extend across the
entire chair, avoiding the need for additional parts and welds. The overall design flirts with haute couture to achieve a technically demanding and aesthetically pleasing result. As Patrick Jouin himself admits, «this is a technological challenge that on
ly Fermob could take up.»
