Marie Christine Dorner has designed a sofa for Ligne Roset that calmly faces surprises.
With its minimalist 50s/60s feel, the seat/back shell’s softly rounded shape is evocative of comfort: the welcoming angle between the seat and back, the sensual thickness of the upholstered foam padding. Its Scandinavian-style modesty is in contrast with the sophisticated architecture of the base which supports it. This consists of four legs worked from solid ash and set on the diagonal, which sketch out four hyperbolic arcs suggestive of intersecting ogives. This ‘soaring’ note brings the Vik chair great visual lightness – a lightness which in actual fact is very real, given that it only weighs 6.5 kg. When viewed from the rear, the back is mounted delicately on the cradle formed by the summit of the two back legs: this successful detail contributes to the elegance of the Vik chair. With its crossing undulating natural lines, hyperbolic geometry and neo-gothic architectural construction, the Vik chair is not unreminiscent of the works of Gaudi.
