Tomorrow we presented here five original scandinavian seating designs from the second half of the last century. Today, in context to it, we have to post this spectacular sculptural armchair designed in 1970s by French sculptor and designer Alain Douillard. Steel and leather armchair is characterized by similar extreme qualities as some scandinavian designs in the previous article. But Douillard`s work represents the next level of convergency of design and fine art. Because this armchair looks more sculpture than useful interior object. For this reason is Alain Douillard`s work exhibited in our favourite Magen H. Gallery in New York right now. Gallery is specializing in design by artist and sculptors only. Really extreme seating!
