One of the most emblematic designs is the Vallée Blanche Chaise longue which was designed in 1963 and is characterised by a minimalistic and elegant style. The seamless fabric cover gives the chaise longue a sleek and streamlined look, avoiding any visible seams or interruptions in the fabric’s flow whereas the chromed metal feet provide a touch of modernity and a reflective quality that complements the smooth fabric cover.

Another iconic seating option is the Jupiter swivelling armchair which was originally designed in 1966 and features a rotating base in black satin epoxy lacquered steel. This provides a smooth and stable swivel motion, allowing for easy turning and flexibility in seating arrangements. The chair is upholstered in Soft Touch leather, which gives it a luxurious feel while being durable and easy to maintain. Additionally, it can be customised with fabric upholstery for a different look and texture.
