Hermès
2016

The Sellier sofa highlights Hermes’s signature design as being led by the quest for craftsmanship and innovation. Features of the design are hidden pockets and compartments, saddlebags on the armrest and caned screen sheltering a leather box of secrets. Materials and métiers come together: cabinetmaking, upholstery, and caning, which refers back to the very origins of Hermes in the 19th century, when this material was used in the construction of horse-drawn carriages.

A deserted property, furniture covered in white sheets until the owners return. The soft lines are revealed / appear through the cover; bespoke linen fiber molding techniques have been developed over two years by Mobilier National for this collection.

An evocative tribute to the quality of traditional French cabinet making with the use of French oak

Transmissions is a collection that seeks to investigate the passage of time on objects. It is inspired by a collective image: ghostly silhouettes of old furniture covered in white sheets, sleeping creatures hidden somewhere in an attic. 

A scenography tracks a passage through a labyrinth of objects, leading us to the unveiling of the cardinal piece.

The Claire lounge chair is simple and yet complex. The simplicity of its universal form makes it a timeless piece. The complexity of the walnut frame is a distinct example of old-world wood craftsmanship. The hand carved wood frame is a continuous loop that subtly changes angles as it moves around the chair. The canted back legs are seamlessly integrated into the upholstered back and give the design a sense of motion. The unadorned seat and back provide a blank canvas for the fabric selections and thus, its transformation.
