Enveloping forms, and reissues.
Often pointed to details balanced and in the arc of a circle, the furniture of the 30’s and 40’s made a comeback. The era of minimalism and straight lines seems to be obsolete and leaves room for the queried forms, sometimes sophisticated, where the curves are legion.
Of the sofa the edges are slightly curved in the chair completely curved, the curves are everywhere, and new editions of the seats of the 70’s flower. This is the case of those of Pierre Paulin produced by Artifort in 1975 and revisited today by Ligne Roset under the name of Bonnie.
