FRANCOIS LAFORTUNE – Coexist

This chair, elegant and racy, highlights the cohabitation of techniques and materials. Carbon, a technical material par excellence, is applied fiber by fiber like a straw marquetry from which it borrows its refinement. As for the carbon seat, it is covered with natural vegetable-tanned leather. The Coexist armchair thus offers an alliance between the finesse of handcrafted work and the solidity of carbon; the radicality of the lines and the comfort.

BIOGRAPHY

After six years of training in chair carpentry at the École Boulle, he decided to enrich his vision of creation by taking a three-year course in industrial design at the ECAL (École cantonale d’art de Lausanne). Once his studies are completed, he joins the Lausanne design studio Big-Game. In 2020, he signed the design of the basin of the Youth Olympic Games “Lausane 2020”. These experiences allow him to consider a wide range of projects, from handcrafted creations to industrial design, while maintaining a unity in his creative process. His search for essential creations leads him today to propose objects as simple as they are conscious.
