HUMPHREY

Product description

Evangelos Vasileiou describes Humphrey: “To sit in this armchair is to be invited on a journey; a journey which takes place both in the here and now and in magical universes. Humphrey could be part of a cinema set in a ‘film noir’. One could well imagine it in the lobby of a New York tower block, in the entrance hall of a building in Brasilia, in a hotel lounge in Berlin or Havana, or in a bar in Paris or Cairo. Alongside these dreamlike evocations, the armchair’s design asserts a certain modernity and a place in its time with its eciency and economy of meals. The two massive volumes of the seat float in the air, suspended from a slim, elegant structure, a gesture like the pen-stroke of a calligrapher.

To the steel wire and fabric of the seat, a third material is added for the armrest: solid sculpted wood, a noble, welcoming materials which functions like a punctuation mark to the fluid writing of the structure. Vasileiou is revisiting the 1950s with his very appropriately-named Humphrey armchair, which is just as classically chiselled as the famous of the famous actor.

Accompanied by its footrest, it becomes a chaise longue. Plomb-coloured metal base; seat in leather or fabric; armrests in natural or blackstained oak – and all this at an accessible price.
