RIGA armchair

Product description

With the Riga armchair, he seizes on an archetypal piece, the Voltaire armchair. However comfortable it may be, this traditional armchair generally has a rather sti¥, static air. Eric Jourdan’s challenge was to soften its lines and breathe life and dynamism into them. By treating the exterior shell as a shroud, a living skin which envelops the seat and back cushions, Eric Jourdan delivers a rejuvenated, pared-down version with free, sensual lines.

The tight curve of the armrests brings them intimately close to the arms of the user in a movement which is as surprising as it is welcoming. The slope of the back guarantees just the right degree of comfort whilst lending the whole piece graceful impetus. The contrasting association of the reassuring thickness of the seat and the lightness of the back cushion and the shell lends great strength to the whole piece, evoking the energy of a feline gathering itself up to spring, at once light and powerful.
